Jo-Jo, Congo King in "The Doctor of Doom" (Fox;1948)

Nyoka takes a break today, but the next chapters of her saga will continue tomorrow (and Thursday). Today's classic tale starring Jo-Jo, Congo King is from All Top Comics #14 (July 1948); originally published by Fox and illustrated by Jack Kamen. "The Doctor of Doom" is a riff on “Frankenstein” with the evil Dr. Barba (a female) turning the locals into mindless beasts. She pays the price for tackling the Congo King, who has some beastly friends of his own to save the day. 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 publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
