Princess Pantha in "The Trail of the Sacred Ox" (Standard;1947)

Lest we forget that Princess Pantha (and her companion, Dane Hunter) were somewhat more than your average skin-clad jungle adventurers; here is a nice golden age tale that begins under the big top of their paying circus gig. "The Trail of the Sacred Ox" is from Thrilling Comics #62 (Oct. 1947), originally published by Better/Standard/Nedor (and according to the Grand Comic Database drawn by Art Saaf), however the splash page is clearly signed by Ralph Mayo (so I'm leaning that way myself). 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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

I realize that this work is not by Don Heck, but none-the-less bits of it here-and-there look very much like his style.
