Camilla in "Beyond the Phantom Road" (Fiction House;1941)

Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire stars today in a previously untitled story from Jungle Comics #14 (Feb. 1941); originally published by Fiction House and with art by Robert Webb. The usual jungle scenario shifts over to science-fantasy territory in “Beyond the Phantom Road” which nicely concludes with the villain of the piece being transformed into a lowly potato (I kid you not). 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!

His repertoire in the queen's bed would be restricted if his “magic sword” were lodged in a potato
