South Sea Girl in "Echoes of an A-Bomb!" (Leader Ent.;1947)

This comics story is credited to "Thorne Stevenson", but I believe that it's Matt Baker art all the way through, although I'm not sure if Mr. Baker gets the writing credits too (doubt it). Published by Leader Enterprises / Universal Phoenix Features in late 1947, "Echoes of an A-Bomb!" is taken from Seven Seas Comics #7 (the last issue of that series). Alani, the South Sea Girl, was created by Matt Baker; the popular African-American artist whose cheesecake artwork during the golden age of comics is always in high demand.

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 purpose.

Actually, this is from Seven Seas Comics #6 (July 1947). The GCD guesses the script was by Roth Roche. It's been reprinted twice:
in Fantastic Adventures (I. W. Publishing; Super Comics, 1963 series) #17
in Spicy Tales Special (Malibu, 1989 series) #2
Hope this helps,

I don't have my jungle girls disc with me at the moment, but I'm sure that this has been reprinted by AC Comics too.

I will have to check and get back to you.
