Judy of the Jungle in "Vengeance of U'Bongo" (Nedor;1948)

It has been almost a full year since Judy of the Jungle visited the Catacombs in January 2010. I'll have to make sure that she doesn't get relegated to the dust bin for that long a span henceforth.

Judy appeared as a regular backup feature in later issues of Exciting Comics, displacing The Black Terror. She quickly began appearing on the covers, of course with art provided by Alex Schomburg, it is easy to see why she had earned so much appeal during her golden age run. "Vengeance of U'Bongo" is from Exciting Comics #62 (Jul.1948); originally published by Better/Standard/Nedor Publications. The artwork is by Ralph Mayo. To make amends for her long absence, I'm including the classic cover by Schomburg, plus a two-page text story, Judy and the Circle of Fear written by Charles S. Strong.

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