Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle in "Fury and the Vengeful Wizard" (Fiction House; 1941)

Although Fantomah later changed her appellation to "Daughter of the Pharaohs", in her earlier career role she was referred to as "The Mystery Woman of the Jungle". It is in that capacity that she stars today in a previously untitled story from Jungle Comics #19 (Jul.1941); originally published by Fiction House, that I'm calling "Fury and the Vengeful Wizard". This tale was written by ['W.B. Hovious'] and illustrated by Richard Case. There is some interesting juju action going on here, and apparently size really doesn't matter, at least as far as the outcome of this particular golden age classic. 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!
