Tygra in "The Beasts of Dr. Krafte" (Standard; 1947)

Tygra helps ease us towards Halloween with an excellent golden age thriller entitled "The Beasts of Dr. Krafte" from Startling Comics #48 (Nov.1947); originally published by Better/Standard/Nedor. Joe Greene is credited with scripting chores, but sadly no artist is identified. “Tygra” (as Lynn Thomas was christened by the Flame People) and her paramour, Dr. Terry Winton encounter a situation that eerily channels “The Island of Dr. Moreau”, perhaps with a little “Dr. Cyclops” mixed in. The Catacombs 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!
