Terrifying Tales 14, 1953

This comic was published by Star comics and features reprints of Rulah Jungle Goddess that were originally published by Fox Comics. The Rulah stories feature great art by Jack Kamen. The writing isn't bad either, a little silly but fun. For example, here is the origin of Rulah:
Joan Grayson who we now call Rulah was a society aviatrix who went missing on a daring flight over Africa. Joan was not killed when her plane crashed, but was regarded by the natives as a goddess sent from the skies! Soon her love for the jungle and its simple folk exceeded her love for any man. She has made an entirely new life here away from the hurly-burly ways of civilization...
Basically, Rulah is a mighty and courageous protector of the jungle - like Tarzan, but with a Betty Page haircut.

Stunning cover artwork by L. B. Cole who was the owner and publisher of Star comics. Cole drew almost all of Star's covers and used reprints from other publishers for the contents. Ironically, thanks to Cole's popular cover art Star reprints are often more valuable and collectible than the original comics their stories were reprinted from.

P.S. I no longer own this comic, it was sold in April 2003 for $90.
