Voodah in "Plot of the Gorilla Masters" (McCombs; 1948)

The golden age African warrior, Voodah, from Crown Comics was eventually changed into just another white jungle lord in a loincloth. The reasoning behind this transformation is lost to the ages, but such is life. This previously untitled story that I’m calling “Plot of the Gorilla Masters” from Crown Comics #15 (Nov.1948); originally published by McCombs Publications, was written by Ken Fitch and drawn by Anthony Cataldo. Voodah faces a great band of gorillas led by two men in gorilla suits who attack the Unyoro village and kill or capture half the tribe. 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!
