Nyoka adventures are always full of pleasant suprises and this short 7 page story is no exception - - - she is hit in the head, knocked out, robbed, revisited and kidnapped, manhandled, over the hip carried kicking and flailing, shoved down, held down, and finally rescued by her boy friend "Larry". All this DID excitement in 7 short pages - - - amazing isn't it? The story is about a phonograph given to her as a gift, and as she is trying it out, some local natives hear the voices coming from the "box", they think it is "magic" and they want it. They visit her at night, knock her out and steal her phonograph. Alas, they are unable to make it play. Angry, they return to Nyoka's hut, grab her, manhandle her, and carry her back to their camp and force her to make the phonograph "speak" to them. But the needle has come up missing and it won't play. The two tribal "hoods" rough her up and threaten to kill her if she won't make it speak to them. She uses a "straight pin" used to pin her blouse to make the phonograph play, and then tries to sneak off to home. The straight pin breaks, voices cease coming from the "box" and the natives chase her down and rough her up some more. Finally Larry shows up and rescues her. As I've said many times, when it comes to artistic graphic illustration, she may not be top shelf, but when it comes to DID story-writing -- Nyoka is unsurpassed, she is the greatest. Enjoy.
