Auro, Lord of Jupiter in "Land of the Sun People" (Fiction House; 1942)
Looks like I can squeeze in one more post this month before we ready ourselves for May 2012, and the honor falls to Auro, Lord of Jupiter who returns today in a story from Planet Comics #21 (Nov.1942); originally published by Fiction House and illustrated by Rafael Astarita. There was no official title for this golden age classic, thus I've christened it "Land of the Sun People". The bonus cover artwork is by Dan Zolnerowich. These scans are from microfiche so bear with me a bit, some of the microfiche scans that I have for this feature are ruined beyond my ability to post them, and that's too bad since the character often had really good artists working on the stories. 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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
