Random Comic Book Splash Page #20

Back to Gold Key for this one-shot that was probably intended to be a series, if not for lackluster sales. Jerry Siegel, one of the creators of Superman, came up with Tiger Girl and enlisted veteran journeyman Jack Sparling to create the art for the first issue, "Tiger Girl Combats Wolf Hound." If TIGER GIRL was as tired and campy as the stories Siegel was penning for Mighty Comics during the mid-1960s, I'm not surprised it was a dud. Sparling's splash page for this 1968 story is nice, though.

How could such a awesome sounding character like 'Tiger Girl' fail?!? I want to read the rest of the comic!
