Thun'da in "The White Goddess of Kotangu!" (ME;1952)
Frank Frazetta would have been a tough act for anyone to follow even in the golden age, but the art duties on Thun'da, King of the Congo had to fall to someone, and Bob Powell (also this issues cover artist) was the lucky guy who succeeded him on this feature. This story called "The White Goddess of Kotangu!" is from Thun'da #2 (1952); originally published by Magazine Enterprises. Bill Black's AC Comics reprinted this classic in black & white in Thrilling Wonder Tales #1 (1991), but here it is in full color straight from the source. 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. Enjoy!

THUN'DA #1 by Frank Frazetta is my all-time favorite comic book. However I am fond of all of the rest of the issues, as well as all issues of CAVE GIRL, with Bob Powell's art. I know that it is frowned on by most collectors, but I had them all bound in hardcover many, many years ago. It's too bad that ME didn't continue publishing the title. Maybe the Comics Code was to blame.
