Auro, Lord of Jupiter in "The Sacred Festival of Mur" (Fiction House;1944)

Auro, Lord of Jupiter returns in a short story from Planet Comics #28 (Jan.1944); originally published by Fiction House. As there was no official title for this golden age adventure, I've christened it "The Sacred Festival of Mur ". ["John Charles"] is credited on the title page, but the Grand Comics Database attributes the artwork on this tale to Alex Blum and Arnold Hicks. Also of note, artist Robert Webb is credited with reworking some of the faces. 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. Enjoy!
