Judy of the Jungle in "The Treasure of Lobengula" (Better/Nedor; 1948)

Judy of the Jungle returns in today's neat golden age post from Exiting Comics #60, originally published by the company of many names, Better/Standard/Nedor/Pines in March 1948. "The Treasure of Lobengula" was drawn by the great Ralph Mayo, and I'm also including a couple of bonuses today including the classic cover by Alex Schomburg and a two page text feature, "The Magic Voice", from the same issue that is credited to 'Charles Sturdy'.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Can never get enough Schomburg. The best good girl artist comics had to offer during that time period !

Chuck: What a beautiful cover!! Mama Mia, that's pretty. The interior ain't bad, either. I have seen some other Mayo recently, I forget where (probably here?) He really does make a nice page, doesn't he? I love the pages where Judy is swinging or moving out of panel. -- Mykal
