Marga the Panther Woman in "The Return of Uchunko" (Fox; 1940)

"The Return of Uchunko" from Science Comics #3 (Apr. 1940); originally published by Fox and illustrated by Emil Gershwin, features Marga the Panther Woman. Mining this recent online source allows me to post stories that I did not previously have access to, and since Marga is a former Catacombs regular; that is a nice plus. I do admit that this tale irks the hell out of me. You’ll notice that Marga takes a back seat in this adventure to her boyfriend Ted Grant (no relation to the similarly named DC hero, Wildcat) and Ted even gets to utter the final punchline. Me, I would have preferred that Ted die a violent in-story death. The Catacombs gratefully acknowledges "The Digital Comic Museum", as the source of this classic comic 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!
