Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire in "Caredodo" (Fiction House;1940)

Legendary golden age artist Bob Powell illustrates "Caredodo", a previously untitled thriller starring Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire from Jungle Comics #6 (Jun.1940); originally published by Fiction House. Clearly inspired on the classic novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” by Victor Hugo, it is still a fun read. 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 belongs to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

I really like the results when Powell was still working within the conventions of the early golden age.

(See also, for example, the story reproduced at the Pictorial Arts for 22 July 2010.)
