Tiger Girl in "Quest of Blood" (Fiction House;1946)

Tiger Girl (aka Princess Vishnu) returns to the Catacombs in "Quest of Blood" from Fight Comics #47 (Dec.1946); originally published by Fiction House. Written by "Allan O'Hara" and illustrated by Matt Baker (assisted by the Iger Shop gang), today's story has Tiger Girl facing off against a bloodthirsty horde of raiders who've been handpicked to exact revenge upon Princess Vishnu for her past successes in stymieing these swarthy villains. Her regular sidekicks Abdola and Benzali leap to her aide, and almost pay the ultimate price for their loyalty. Loyalty is apparently the theme of this fine golden age tale as an unexpected betrayal proves quite handy at story's end. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.
