Zegra, Jungle Empress in "The Flying Death" (Fox;1948)

"Tegra" was first introduced as the star of a rewritten "Rulah, Jungle Goddess" story, but with this issue she became a wholly separate character whose name was quickly changed to Zegra and whose hair color was changed from brunette to blond with Zegra Jungle Empress #2 (Oct.1948); originally published by Fox Feature Syndicate. She was apparently the “Empress” of a village filled to bursting with blond, brunette and red-headed jungle gals. Today’s tale is called “The Flying Death” and sadly page #6 is missing (the very reason why I've held off on posting this story), however this is the last Tegra/Zegra tale that I have, and the artist is not identified in the GCD. 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!
