Auro, Lord of Jupiter vs. "The Tyrant of Jupiter" (Fiction House;1943)







Auro, Lord of Jupiter helps an old friend, Laron of Tando, rescue his kidnapped daughter, Mara from the vicious Opar Irafa in today's rather abruptly ended story from Planet Comics #27 (Nov.1943); originally published by Fiction House. As there was no title for this golden age adventure, I've christened it "The Tyrant of Jupiter".


["Dick Charles"] is credited on the title page, and the Grand Comics Database attributes the artwork on this tale to Joe Doolin. 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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.


Enjoy!

Do you suppose they just ran out of paper? Whatever the cause of these abrupt endings, I still dig this stuff. Working writers and artists figuring the medium out and having fun while doing it.

I'm envious.
