Nyoka the Jungle Girl 4
New photo feature!! This issue’s new lead story is something special- not a line-drawn comic strip at all, but a series of photos shot and composed to tell a story!! Model/actress Laura Stafford portrays “Young Nyoka”, as she and her pet cat repell an alien invasion!! Unique, interesting and fun!! Three more classic Golden Age reprints fill out the vintage section, including “Perils in the Pyramids”, from Fawcett’s Master comics #92, June of 1948, as drawn by E. C. Comics great, Bernie Krigstein; “Jungle Ambush”, from Charlton’s Nyoka #20, and “A King’s Ransom”, from #21, both illustrated by Maurice Whitman. The text feature is a rundown of the first Nyoka serial, Republic’s 1941 Jungle Girl, written by Bill Feret- “A Legend Is Born”. Color photo cover of Laura Stafford as Young Nyoka, black and white back and inside covers of Kay Aldridge and Francis Gifford as Nyoka. Interiors are black and white with graytones. 44 pages, standard comic book format. Printed in 1989.
