Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 87 - Jungle Comics #2 (1940)

April 22, 2018

Salutations, noble comic book savages! In this episode, our intrepid explorers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) plumb the depths of the dark interior of the African continent when they read Jungle Comics #2, published by Fiction House in 1940! They go through all nine(!) stories within the issues, providing creator bios and background information where applicable, with a special emphasis on the ninth story--the first appearance of the first female superhero, Fantomah by Fletcher Hanks! Then, after a break, the stalwart adventurers detail the life of Fantomah, and give a brief history of Fiction House, a seminal Golden Age comics publisher. You'll like the jungle so much, you'll never want to go back to Greystoke!
