Camilla, Queen of the Jungle Empire in "The Lion Cult" (Fiction House; 1942)

Camilla, Queen of the Jungle Empire, stars in a story from Jungle Comics #34 (Oct. 1942); originally published by Fiction House, and illustrated by “Nick Viscardi” a name more familiar to Silver Age DC Comics fans as Nick Cardy (Aquaman, Bat Lash, etc.). Despite the presence of killer crocodiles and a talking ape, I’m dubbing this previously untitled golden age classic “The Lion Cult.” 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!
