Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire; Part II (Fiction House; 1940)

I posted the first story featuring Camilla back on January 14, 2010. Camilla was variously portrayed as a descendant of Genghis Khan, as the despotic queen of a lost empire founded by vikings, and eventually as just another sultry jungle girl in a print bikini. The first "Queen of the Lost Empire" story in Jungle Comics #1, actually showed her characters death, but that didn't stop her from rebounding here.

Written and illustrated by Charles A. Winter (signed "CAW"), this story is taken from Jungle Comics #2 (Feb. 1940), originally published by Fiction House. Tune back in tomorrow for the next chapter of this serial adventure and I have to mention that the scans for this one are from a microfiche source, so it's a bit grainy.

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 belong to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
