More Jungle Girl (and Dinosaur and Space Girl) Comics

Continuing to catch up on the great adventure comics that have been popping up lately...

Camilla and the Festival of B'Togi

One of the best things about Camilla is that they chose some amazing artists to draw her. This one's by Matt Baker. [The Comic Book Catacombs]

Camilla and the Blue Juju

And this one's by Fran Hopper. According to Pappy, Camilla was originally based on H. Rider Haggard's Ayesha from She, but eventually turned into a standard jungle girl. [Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine]

Nimba and the Mountain of Doom

Nimba's not the star of the story (that would be Safari Cary), but she steals the show. She and this next story are in the same link, so let's move on to...

Tangi and the Merchants of Murder

Illustrated by Jack Kamen. [Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine]

The Origin of Princess Pantha

Another gorgeously illustrated story, this one by Art Saaf. [The Comic Book Catacombs]

Princess Pantha and the Jungle of Despair

This one's also by Art Saaf. I think Pantha's right behind Jann in my list of favorite jungle heroes. [Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine]

Tiger Girl

Another one by Matt Baker. Man, that guy could draw. [The Comic Book Catacombs]

Fantomah, Mystery Woman of the Jungle

Fantomah's in a class of jungle girl all by herself. Not only does she fly, but she also turns into this weird, blue, skull-faced creature. Blame Fletcher Hanks. [The Comic Book Catacombs]

Fantomah, Daughter of the Pharaohs

Later on, like Camilla, she settled into a standard jungle-girl role. Except she fought mummies (or at least kept tabs on them until her panther Fury and her pal Captain Horus could fight them). [Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine]

The Land Unknown

Still in the jungle, but replacing scantily clad women with even more scantily clad dinosaurs. This adaptation of the 1957 B-movie The Land Unknown is by the great Alex Toth. [Hairy Green Eyeball 2]

Futura vs. Yrina, the Corsair Queen

Last, but certainly not least, the story of Futura continues as she meets a space pirate different from herself (as Sleestak puts it) "only by the choices they made and the paths taken." [Lady, That's My Skull]
