Rulah Jungle Goddess in "Death's Grim Reflection" (Fox;1948)

The Catacombs favorite jungle honey, Rulah Jungle Goddess makes her long overdue return today in a story from Zoot Comics #14 [b] (May 1948). There were actually two separate and consecutive #14 issues published by Fox Feature Syndicate during the golden age, the first in March; hence the whole [b] designation since this is the second of the pair. The same oddity occurred with the previous issue, so there were also two #13's. Weird!

Matt Baker lovingly illustrated this Rulah adventure called "Death's Grim Reflection". This tale was later reprinted in Terrors of the Jungle #8 (Star Publications; 1953 series). 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.

Going around New York City dressed as a US Navy seaman seems an odd choice for an intelligence agent in 1948. I wonder if they were near the Brooklynn Navy Yard?

Three thousand miles from NYC doesn't get you to any part of Africa. With the other clues we've seen about Rulah's location, it probably should have been 7000 miles.
