Auro, Lord of Jupiter in "The Dragon Man" (Fiction House;1940)

Auro (aka The Lord of Jupiter) appears today from the third issue of venerable Fiction House series, Planet Comics (March 1940). Auro was essentially an outer space version of Tarzan, where the son of the doomed Prof. and Mrs, Hardwich was befriended by a saber-tooth tiger, after being stranded on Jupiter. The higher gravitational pull of the planet gave Auro muscles as strong as steel. The artwork from today's story is credited to R.L. Golden.

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.
