"Nyoka and the Python Peril" (Fawcett; 1944)

"The Death Rug" serial continues in the seventh chapter from Master Comics #55 (Oct. 1944), originally published by Fawcett Comics & written by Rod Reed and drawn by Jack Sparling.

Nyoka the Jungle Girl was previously left left clutched in the coils of the vile Vida's slithering serpent, but that almost pales in comparison to the dreaded peril awaiting her in the last panel of this thrilling chapter. As a head's up, there are only three remaining chapters of this golden age serial adventure, so rather than wait a few weeks to see the next portion, I thought that it would be better to let it just run its course.

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

The cover of this classic issue by artist Bud Thompson, featuring Captain Marvel Jr. is included as a bonus freebie.

Wait, she was wearing a red dress in the previous episode. Now she is wearing a white blouse and shorts.
