Frank Frazetta Tribute: Thun'da in "Gods of the Jungle" (ME;1952)

Thun'da, King of the Congo #1 was originally published by Magazine Enterprises in 1952. Gardner Fox wrote all of the stories and Frank Frazetta fully illustrated the entire package, including the terrific cover (which I'm saving for tomorrow). At some point I had actually planned to post the stories from this issue, but since I've searched through the entire backlog of posts in the Catacombs and failed to find any of them, I believe that I changed my mind. I do seem to remember pondering whether I should follow through with that idea, due to the fact that this issue has been reprinted a few times over the years, and probably shied away from doing so.

However, with the passing of Mr. Frazetta, and since I've already posted the third-of-four tales from this golden age classic yesterday, I'm gonna go ahead and post the last of that issues Thun'da stories today. Tomorrow I will post the first & second Thun'da adventures, and I apologize for falling out of sequence here, but the stories are so awesome that I hope you will forgive me in the long run.

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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
