Fantomah, Daughter of the Pharaohs in "The Death of a Thousand Cuts" (Fiction House; 1942)

At this point in her golden age career, Fantomah had discarded her original super-powered, fright-masked "Mystery Woman of the Jungle" guise and had been effectively rebooted as the "Daughter of the Pharaohs." It is in this role that she stars today in a previously untitled tale that I've labeled "The Death of a Thousand Cuts" from Jungle Comics #30 (Jun.1942); originally published by Fiction House and written by ["W.B. Hovious"] and illustrated by George Appel. The great river devil splash panel really gets the action started off nicely, too. 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 belongs to the original publisher and/or creators, and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
