Fawcett Fridays #3 - featuring Nyoka -2022.11

Nyoka, The Jungle Girl is featured in this banner.  To learn about what sources were used to create this banner Click Here.

Hi Gang,
I'm sure some of you must have noticed several new scans of 'Nyoka, Jungle Girl' going up on the site the last month or so.
These are all thanks to Titansfan and David Miles.  All of their uploads are big upgrades on the older scans that have been on DCM for years.
The guys will be doing FIFTY-FIVE new scans over the next little while!  DCM felt it deserved it's own banner to mark the occasion.  TF and DM have agreed to debut their new Nyoka scans on Fridays so we could do another instalment of Fawcett Fridays!

Again, a very big thank-you to Titansfan and David Miles for all their work on these.

And thanks again to SRCA1941 (Eric S.) who has been amazingly generous with DCM this past year will also be sharing even more Fawcett books from his impressive collection.

Meanwhile, if you aren't familiar with Nyoka, she first appeared in a Republic Pictures serial 'Jungle Girl' in 1941 and then a sequel 'Perils of Nyoka' (1942), considered by many as one of the best of the jungle serials.  From this it was adapted into a Fawcett one-shot comic 'Jungle Girl' in 1942.  After appearing in several issues of 'Master Comics' she was given her own title in 1945.  (Republic Pictures would adapt Captain Marvel (1941), and Spy Smasher (1942) as serials.) 
You can read Jungle Girl #1 on DCM at this link - https://tinyurl.com/2hs6mmkj

Fawcett's 'Nyoka' title continued for 77 issues and are on DCM at this link - https://tinyurl.com/2hns7hcu.  Her appearances in 'Master Comics' from #50 to 132 are found here - https://tinyurl.com/2pz6zfh3 .  Be sure to give Nyoka #46 a look - it has a surreal adventure right out of 'Gulliver's Travels'.

When Fawcett left the comics field after their decades long court battle with DC (click here to learn more about how DC vs Fawcett went) they sold off several titles to Charlton Comics including our jungle heroine.  Nyoka first appeared there in Zoo Funnies v2 #8 (Oct-Nov 1954) for six issues (all on DCM) before she got her own title again at Charlton one year later. (See here for those issues)  Charlton's title would last nine issues through 1957.  She was in 175 books between Fawcett and Charlton!  More appearances than several other better known Jungle Queens of the goldlen-age!

What made her popular enough to last from 1938 until well into the 90s?  See the CCI: Comic Character Investigation link below that digs into just that question...

Here are some links to get you up to speed -

Wasn't the first serial billed as "Edgar Rice Burroughs' Jungle Girl"?
Burroughs did write an adventure serial called Jungle Girl, although it was retitled The Land of Hidden Men for book publication.
Was there ever any actual connection?  Were any of Burroughs characters or plots used in the films or the comics?

You might be right about the first serial's name but from what I've read (see the links at the end of the announcement) the ERB plots were not used.

Thanks. I was wondering whether to include these scans in my Burroughs collection.

I really appreciate the Nyoka scans. Just one thing to point out is that Perils of Nyoka is not a serial to Jungle Girl. The Nyoka characters have different last names in the serials, no characters appear in the other serial and Jungle Girl takes place in Central Africa in the jungles while Perils of Nyoka appears to be in Northern Africa.

Thanks Hi,
Yes, one of the links in the introduction above points out there are differences between  the serial and the comics.  Of course all the jungle themed books have Tarzan as the ancestor.

Glad you are enjoying the new scans, there even more to come!
