South Sea Girl in "Horror in the Hills" (Leader/Universal Features;1946)

Matt Baker draws "South Sea Girl" from Seven Seas Comics #2 (July 1946),originally published by Leader Enterprises/Universal Phoenix Features. South Sea Girl was also known as Alani, and she differed from most jungle girls by her location and her usual garb, a sarong (probably inspired by popular Dorothy Lamour films).

This story was later reprinted in Voodoo #2 (Ajax; Farrell, 1952 series) with the main character's name changed from Alani to El'nee. The cover for this issue featuring Captain Cutlass (credited to Robert Webb) is included today as a bonus.

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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

You gotta love the sexual symbolism subtext in that great splash panel!
