The Story Behind the Story: The short-lived adventures of Leader's South Sea Girl appeared from 1946-47 in Seven Seas Comics, a delightful series of swashbuckling adventure tales. By 1955, Farrell introduced their heroine Vooda (named so that they could continue to publish the comic Voodoo with a Comics Code-friendly name) but, being a publisher with very little in the way of original material, they looked to reprints of South Sea Girl to fill in most of Vooda's adventures. The fact that the South Seas are rather, well, in Asia-Pacific while the Congo is rather, well, all the way on the Atlantic coast of Africa mattered little. The Congo, Polynesia... they're practically the same place!
