The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 508: Rima, the Jungle Girl #7, May 1975

http://www.comics.org/issue/28428/

This is an odd comic. I don't know much about Rima or her origins, but she apparently hangs out in the jungle with this shirtless dude, and they have adventures. But she gets jealous of him wanting to take a job with a rich lady, and runs off into the jungle. And then the rich lady's kid does some super-shitty things (like beating on a bear cub, or pouring gasoline into a river and lighting it to scare crocodiles), which results in his death by crocodile.

And then Rima and her dude go back to their jungle life.

That's the story. I don't even know what to say. The moral? Shitty kids meet shitty ends, I guess.

Onward.
