"Gal" Friday! Elsa Pataky

Spanish model, actress, and film producer Elsa Pataky played Officer Elena Neves in the movie “Fast Five”, with Dwayne Johnson as her partner on the hunt for Vin Diesel and company. She reprises that role in the current box office hit Fast and Furious 6, although in a smaller capacity. Her other film credits include Beyond Re-Animator, Snakes on a Plane, Give 'Em Hell, Malone, and Ninette (worth checking out for copious amounts of nudity). Although she has previously dated actors Adrien Brody and Oscar Martinez, she married “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers” star Chris Hemsworth in 2010. If you have got some spare time, surf the web for her fantastic body-painted cover for ELLE magazine.

Captain Cutlass in "Rascals, Ransom and Revenge" (Leader; 1947)

When you're ready come and get it, Na na na” seems to work for Selena Gomez, so why not utilize the same tease for the Catacombs?

Thanks to all of you friendly folks who’ve continued to stop by here during my extended sabbatical, and for the comments you’ve posted, and/or messages that you’ve sent me privately. I’m only easing back into the blogging swing of things, so gimme a bit to post here with more regularity. For now enjoy a Captain Cutlass pirate adventure tale from Seven Seas Comics #6 (1947); originally published by Leader Enterprises. Despite the splash credit, Manning Lee Stokes is the writer and likely Matt Baker or Jack Kamen provided the uncredited art. The Catacombs acknowledges "Comic Book Plus", as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
