White Princess of the Jungle #1 head KO, falling

Categories DrowningHead KO

Her name is Taanda, and she is the red-headed ruler of the Tauruti tribe in darkest Africa; the year is 1951. Some white poachers are stealing animals already in traps set by the Tauruti tribesmen. Taanda discovers their felonious deeds and gives them a chance to give the stolen animals back. The baddies choose to fight, and hit Taanda across the forehead with a pistol butt. She goes limp and falls into the crocodile ridden river. She recovers a while later, kills a croc that was planning to have her for dinner, and returns to defeat the baddies. Not a bad episode, considering that she was a complete unknown and debutted during the senseless furor that existed in the era immediately preceding inception of the Comic Book Code (in 1954). I think she looked quite good for a short-lived unknown, but then, any jungle girl starting out in 1951 - no matter how good they looked - was not destined to last very long; what a shame -- scarcity and rarity may be the reason we enjoy the golden age so much. Oh well, let's do it!

Good knockout scene. I remember this issue. Did she not get knocked out two other times in this issue? Maybe I'm thinking of another story. Thanks for posting. This brings back good memories.

She did have a couple of other KO's in other issues, but none as well depicted as this. I'll try to locate and post the others. GLad you like it.
