Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire; Part IV (Fiction House; 1940)

As promised, here is the next chapter of Camilla. This one is from Jungle Comics #4 (Apr. 1940) by Fiction House and writer/artist Charles A. Winter. The Queen of the Lost Empire has a better disposition at story's end, and there is yet another large snake on hand to imperil her "guests". I will run more of this strips chapters at some point down the road, but my very next golden age jungle story post will star a jungle lord making his Catacombs debut. While I may post an additional item later today, don't forget to drop by tomorrow for my regular "Gal" Friday featurette.

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.

Thanks for the chance to see scans of these!

As well as the influence of Haggard's She, it seems to me that there's something of The Phantom Empire in these stories.
