Safari Cary in "Mountain of Doom" (Fox;1948)

I freely admit it, Pappy posted this story back in December 2009. I also had the scans in the queue, but he had notified me in advance that he was planning on running "Mountain of Doom" starring Safari Cary, as part of his own jungle girls week. Cool beans, but enough time may have elapsed to allow me the opportunity to rerun the story, since it is a pretty nice looking adventure tale from the Fox Comics series, Dagar Desert Hawk #15 (Apr.1948). Safari Cary was featured in Dagar from #14-23. Just like Pappy, I have no clue who to credit with the sweet artwork, but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate this blast from the past. 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!

Did you say I showed this in December 2009?! Holy cow, that's more than enough time elapsed for you to show it. Remember the motto, it it's good once it'll still be good.

Speaking of good...interesting artwork, too...I'm not positive, but it looks like it could be the work of Edmond Good.

Yep, that's Canadian Edmond Good going under his pen name of Damond. He did some fine work for Bell Features before going to the States to further his career. There's an entry for him here:
