Nyoka the Jungle Girl #15 is another positively great story featuring this amazing jungle girl in deep distress big time. Always, her stories were written in 2 or 3 or 4 mini-chapters and consistently each chapter had a cliff-hanger ending at the end of it. I have always considered #15 to be one of the very best stories she ever appeared in. Briefly, the plot is: Nyoka visits an old friend, a wealthy Maharajah, in India. During her visit the Maharajah's assistant secretly plots with an American ex-convict to "kidnap" (no pun intended) a "sacred goat" living on the Maharajah's estate (goats are "kids", get it?) and through a third party (the ex-con) ask the Marahajah for $1 million in ransom money to save the sacred animal. Nyoka accidently stumbles in on the plot and gets KO'd, manhandled, and dragged to a poisonous river to be drowned in deadly water. Nyoka's artistic rendering, unfortunately, is never top shelf -- mediocre at best, but the story writer's concept of having her KO'd and then dragged to the river to be drowned I believe puts this story among the best DID tales ever written, and one can only fantasize how much better these scenes would have been if the graphic art was better, or if the damsel was Wonder Woman or Sheena. Nyoka is knocked out in one scene in one-on-one hand-to-hand combat, and then her conquering assailant stoops over her helpless and alluring face and comes cheek to cheek with her, almost as if to kiss her before killing her. It's DID fun at its absolute very best. In another chapter, she knocks herself out on a rock -- again in hand to hand combat, and then she is tied up and left for the wild animals to devour. Her stories were the best of the best in the realm of DID.
