Rulah Jungle Goddess in "The Poison Sourswine" (Fox;1948)

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, which rings false in regards to my ex-wife, but definitely proves true with the lovely Rulah Jungle Goddess. The jungle goddess has been away too long; my "ex", not long enough. This fun tale called "The Poison Sourswine" from Zoot Comics #16 (July.1948); was originally published by Fox Feature Syndicate, Inc. The GCD lists Matt Baker as artist, with a question mark; which brings into question whether he flew solo on this exciting tale, or did Jack Kamen lend a helping hand?

Wonder when that Matt Baker biography will finally be released? Amazon's had it listed as "not yet available" for at least a year. I'd like to get it once it finally hits air.

Andy 7, to tide yourself over, I recommend picking up Matt Baker: The Art of Glamour from TwoMorrows publishing. It's available at their website right now for a 15% discount, making it around $34.
