Tabu, Wizard of the Jungle in "The Wind God" (Fiction House;1940)

Tabu, Wizard of the Jungle returns to the Catacombs today in an untitled tale from Jungle Comics #7 (July 1940); originally published by Fiction House and credited to writer Robert Lewis and artist Charles Sultan. Tabu must face a terrible wind, blowing over Africa and wreaking havoc on local villages. The capricious wind-god known as Boreas is responsible and although Tabu tries to prevent the carnage, superstitious villagers take the opportunity to scheme against our hero.

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.

The art is excellent; the writing… well, by rights the author ought have paid the publisher for this, and the readers should each have received a dime!

It's nice to get a look at this character after his creator Fletcher Hanks passed it on to other talents Hanks only did the first installment, but it seems the follow-ups were almost as daft!
