Red Panther in "Red Panther's Danger" (Fiction House;1940)

No doubt you've noticed that I didn't prepare a "Nedor-A-Weekend" feature as planned. I blame it on Rio, so instead you get to see this golden age tale which was on standby. "Red Panther's Danger", my own title suggestion (since no official one was listed in the Grand Comics Database) was originally published in Jungle Comics #3 by Fiction House in March 1940.

The script is credited to Taylor Martin and Arthur Peddy illustrated this adventure, although the fine cover was done by the great Charles Sultan.

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.

Some younger readers may be unaware that, at the time that this story appeared, the use of “blacks” for the indigenous people of subsaharan Africa was pronounc√®dly contemptuous. (It was in the '60s that an attempt was begun, then by militants, to take it away from racists.)
