Fantomah vs. "The Super-Gorillas!" (Fiction House;1940)

"Go Ape Shit Week" continues with today's classic golden age tale from Jungle Comics #4 (Apr. 1940); originally published by Fiction House. Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle, stops a mad scientist (called simply "The Doctor" and his cohort, Mac) who have taken control of the gorillas in the jungle by turning them into super-gorillas. This story was reprinted as "You Shall Die by Your Own Evil Creations", by Fantagraphics in 2009.

Although the story is signed as "Barclay Flagg", the actual writer/artist/letterer is Fletcher Hanks. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
