The Game Called Dying

Time for some jungle jitters with the greediest cast of comic book characters ever collected in one short story. It’s no spoiler to call this a “vengeful severed hand” tale of terror; all you have to do is look at the splash which establishes this fact right off the bat.

From the September 1952 issue of Voodoo #3

Nice, solid '50's-style art.

Yes, good example of what brought on the comics code! Who could have thunk we'd be reading these half a century later on the internet..

Yala deserves resurrection for her own spinoff.

Man, I wish that dude hadn't wasted Yala. She was a keeper!

"Goot Pye!"

That's how I'm closing all my emails from now on. :)

Man, this is a GRIMY little story! Like an exploitation movie, but good! Yala makin' it with the greasy Dutchman, despicable characters all around, even a bathing scene! And those accents!

But our man was right! That Dutchman didn't play fair! What would Max Von Sydow say to see the game of chess sullied by such treachery!

And I agree with the poster who said Yala needed her own book. That's a drawing I could fall in love with. "Yala much love you! Much love you long time!" ;)
