April Update – Two New Titles Available

SF-Header

More whacked-out weirdness from the days when comicbookss still had an edge and featuring (in issue #3) an appearance from everyone’s favourite jungle princess, Rulah (albeit masquerading under the nom du loincloth, Pulah. The line-up includes writer Bruce Hamilton and penciller, inker Steve Ditko. Strange Fantasy was formerly Rocketman (with one issue) and picked up where Rocketman ceased publication. Strange Fantasy is then numbered 2-14 rather than 1-13. The title left newsstands in 1954, the victim of the hearings in the Senate.

Rulah-3-Header

You know what? I’m packing my bag—just the essentials, of course—and preparing to head on out to Darkest Africa (or some such like) cos that’s where all the babes hang out . . . the latest being Rulah. Rulah first appeared in Zoot Comics #7 back in June 1947 and she’s generally regarded as being the brainchild of Matt Baker and, some time later, Jack Kamen and Ghastly Graham Ingels. Hey, what’s not to like, right? For those interested in such stuff—okay, okay . . . put your hands down!–Rulah was ranked #79 in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics”. All I gotta say here is, I wanna see numbers 1 thru 78!

Due to be published for May 2015, Roy Thomas presents the leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane collected together in her own hardback collection.

Includes a special introduction from Hames Ware as well all the original Comic Stories digitally enhanced and faithfully reproduced. Volume Three features stories from 8 – 18 November 1947 to July 1949 (From Al Top) PLUS Tegra/Zegra Issues 1 – 5 August 1948 to April 1949 and Alani (Seven Seas Comics) Issues 1 – 6 1946 – 1947.
