Rulah Jungle Goddess in "Death's Grim Reflection" (Fox;1948)

The Catacombs favorite jungle honey, Rulah Jungle Goddess makes her long overdue return today in a story from Zoot Comics #14 [b] (May 1948). There were actually two separate and consecutive #14 issues published by Fox Feature Syndicate during the golden age, the first in March; hence the whole [b] designation since this is the second of the pair. The same oddity occurred with the previous issue, so there were also two #13's. Weird!

Matt Baker lovingly illustrated this Rulah adventure called "Death's Grim Reflection". This tale was later reprinted in Terrors of the Jungle #8 (Star Publications; 1953 series). The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
