Featuring the first appearance of Tara! Another Paragon classic, now commanding extreme prices in the collector's market (IF you can find a collector willing to part with it)! This issue begins with “The Shade on the Dark Continent” as Roger Brant (The Shade) receives a job offer from Tara’s father, industrialist T.C. Freemont. Then it’s the debt of “Tara the Jungle She-Cat” as she dives into a jungle river to rescue Janis Lawson only to wind up captured herself. (This is Janis’s first appearance also.) Will Tara escape in time to save Janis from the clutches of a giant octopus in “Lair of the Beast-men!” by Bill Black. Then it’s an editorial featuring Sheena, Queen of the Jungle with illustrations by Dan Adkins, Bill Black and R.H. Webb with photos of Irish McCalla as TV’s Sheena. The action continues as The Shade, Tara and Janis team up to tackle the tentacled terror… but is there more to this monster than meets the eye? Finally it’s the second appearance of Captain Paragon and Mara (who would later be known as the Femforce’s Stardust!) in “From the Turmoil… a Friend?” as our hero seeks the aid of Dr. Richard Latimer and his daughter Nicola Latimer in an effort to control his awesome power. Front Cover of Tara by Bill Black. Back cover is a recreation of the Ghost Rider #8 cover by Dick Ayers. Originally published in 1971. This downloadable edition is 31 pages, B&W, complete, uncut and uncensored.
