Perils of Nyoka: "The Finger of Fate" (Fawcett; 1942)

Chapter V of Perils of Nyoka is titled "The Finger of Fate" from Jungle Girl #1 (1942), originally published by Fawcett Comics (which adapted Republic's PERILS OF NYOKA movie serial). As a reminder, in true cliffhanger fashion I'm presenting this story in its entirety over the course of several posts. The last chapter of this golden age serial will be posted tomorrow. I’ve grown quite weary of boyfriend Larry nabbing so much of the action (heck, I wouldn’t mind witnessing his violent death in the epic conclusion). The writer of this adventure is credited as "Rod Reed" and the artwork is by Harry Anderson. 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!
