Rulah Jungle Goddess vs "Ape Women of Antilla" (Fox Comics; 1949)

There were two additional adventures starring our title heroine in Rulah Jungle Goddess #26 (May 1949), but of the remaining two that I have scans for, one is partially incomplete, so I'm skipping it and running the last full story as a sequel from yesterday. "Ape Women of Antilla" pits our gal against a tribe of hairy african women. That's worth the price of admission along, but she also gets to tangle with a huge snake, and still manages to win the day in six measly pages. Whew!

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story which, like yesterdays Rulah post, was originally published by Fox Comics and illustrated by Matt Baker. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

Chuck: I don't suppose its polite to speculate on how a half-gorilla, half woman hybrid came into being.

My friend, you have a knack for finding the greatest, oddest stuff! This one has an African half gorilla woman in it named Sofi. You have to love that. I love when Rulah tells the python that she's going to make it short and not so sweet as she stabs it. Even when dressed in animal skins and killing a snake, woman are so chatty! I have really liked the Fox comics I have seen. More, please.

Mykal, many of the Rulah stories that I have pending are of even higher quality than the last couple that I have posted.

As for finding neat oddities, chalk this one up to Zu-Gogo, he's my personal storytelling coach on the cool jungle comics stuff.
