After World War II, jungle-based heroes and heroines were very popular...
...but this series took the concept from Africa to the Pacific islands and made the heroine a native woman who could go hand-to-hand with any man, or even a shark (which would be hand-to-fin, I suppose)!
Story by Ruth Roche with art by legendary "good-girl" artist Matt Baker, who also illustrated most of the legendary Fox Comics Phantom Lady series (which we're currently running HERE).
This strip ran for all six issues of Seven Seas Comics and some of the stories have been reprinted, usually renaming the heroine or changing the story title.
Though she wasn't originally the cover feature on Seven Seas Comics, once Aliani had the cover (as of #3), she stayed until the end of the run.

Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrl power!
