Tiger Girl in "Wail of the Devil-Doctor" (Fiction House;1945)

Princess Vishnu (aka Tiger Girl) returns to the Catacombs after too long an absence in a golden age story from Fight Comics #40 (Oct. 1945); originally published by Fiction House. Written by "Allan O'Hara" and illustrated by Matt Baker, "Wail of the Devil-Doctor" pits Tiger Girl, her faithful companion Abdola and her loyal tiger, Benzali, against some serious jungle juju in the form of Morgo, a cunning (and obese) shaman who's using a tantalizing potion formulated from "white man's magic". Too bad he didn't reckon with Tiger Girl putting the kibosh on his fat ass.

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.
