Another great Nyoka story here. I'd rate it higher than 2 stars if she was a little more sexy . . alas she isn't . . . same ol' skinny legs,flat chest and plain face. Too bad. If the graphic artist had half the talent of the script writer this story could easily have made 4 stars. That's the paradox of Nyoka -- great stories, poor illustrations. Oh well. . . In this story Simon Degree (obviously a play on words -- aka Simon LaGree the famous melodrama villain) wants to take over the new African railroad and he wants Nyoka to assist in doing a few acts of sabotage. She refuses, naturally, so he ties her to the railroad tracks after rescuing her from some natives who also want to burn her at the stake because they think the railroad is demonic. Nyoka gets her pet elephant to untie her bonds and she survives the railroad bondage trap. Simon is overcome and arrested, jungle justice prevails in the end. Pics below show her captured by the natives, tied to the stake, rescued, arm carried to the railroad tracks and tied again. If only she looked sexier, this would have been a truly great story. Have fun!
