Tabu in "Temple of the Green Buddha" (Fiction House; 1941)

According to legend, Tabu once saved an old witch-doctor from a terrible death and in return for the favor, the witch-doctor granted Tabu extra abilities which made him supreme in the jungle. He can leap higher than a leopard, soar through the winds with more speed than an eagle, and dart through waters more swiftly than a shark. In addition to his human intelligence and his long experience with wildlife, he has a sixth sense that has made him a wizard of the jungle and a foe of all that is evil and unjust. He stars today in a previously untitled adventure that I’m calling “Temple of the Green Buddha” from Jungle Comics #19 (July 1941); originally published by Fiction House and illustrated by Joe Doolin. 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!
