"Nyoka and the Sinister Snake" (Fawcett; 1944)

"The Death Rug" serial from Master Comics #54 (Sept. 1944), continues today with two separate posts comprising the fifth and sixth chapters of this neat golden age adventure featuring Fawcett Comics heroine, Nyoka the Jungle Girl.

Writer Rod Reed and artist Jack Sparling introduce the femme fatale serpent-mistress, Vida in "Nyoka and the Sinister Snake". After the last chapters pumpkin-headed bad guy, Boo Pah Boo, almost any threat would seem more credible to our brave star.

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.

I always wished comic books went for a little more anatomical accuracy when depicting constrictors.
