Jungle Girls 2
Lots more bikini-clad Amazonian adventuresses, leading off with AC’s favorite Femforcer and contemporary lady vine-swinger, Tara Fremont.Tara’s Jungle Island paradise is interrupted by a parachutist toting bags of money. Could it be “The Return of D. B. Cooper”? With story and pencils by Jeff (Shanghai)Whiting, and inks by John(Mystic)Dell. More Golden Age girly goodies with complete story reprints- “Death Comes Three Ways”, starring Magazine Enterprises Cave Girl, originally seen in 1953’s Thun’da #5, and drawn by Bob Powell, and Nyoka, The Jungle Girl from her Fawcett Comics run, in “The Death Mask”, previously printed in Master Comics #131, 1952. Both stories utilize the best reconstruction and reprographics available, and are as perfect as the day they were drawn. Also, part II of an Ed Lane article on Cave Girl that began in Cave Girl #1, plus photos of actress Victoria Vetri, from the 1970 Hammer film, “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth”. Great “good girl art” with a jungle twist. Color cover, interiors are black and white with graytones. 36 pages, standard comic book format. Printed in 1989.
