Rulah Jungle Goddess in "The Ravishing Rustler" (Fox;1948)

All right!

Rulah Jungle Goddess returns to the Catacombs in a fine golden age tale from All Top Comics #13 (Sept.1948); originally published by Fox. [Alec Hope] is credited on the splash page for "The Ravishing Rustler" - same as always - but whether these pencils actually stem more from Jack Kamen or Matt Baker is anyones guess.

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 publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Rulah: "An AMERICAN villainess...I've run across that type BEFORE!"

By 'eck, Chuck, you don't half breed some racy girls over there!

Well look at Rulah herself: "I've got to hear most of the story from you, Chief," she says, "But I've an idea it will be about civilized cunning which usually pays off in death!"

Well it does where you're concerned, dear!

Look at the way she treated poor Fez Guy; and when she said she'd RUN ACROSS American villainess types before, I bet Gingerlocks didn't think she meant literally!

Blim'e! When that native said, "Call off your beast!" it was was obviously Saber he was talking to!

Murd'rin' bitch!

..ah, but with those long, night black tresses and that strangely untanned, scantily clad form I can forgive her anything.


Did you know Chuck Wells is a homophone for Chuck QUELLS? And you've certainly quelled my yearning for American jungle goddesses.

...it's also a homophone for Chaw Squells - almost - though why'd I'd want to chew a cross between a scream and a yell I'm not sure...

...love you!

Hahahahaha! This story offers more straight-faced absurdity than I've seen in a while.
