Wonder Woman 110 November 1959

Tiny Wonder WomanNovember 1959 issue of Wonder Woman #110. The title "Bridge of Crocodiles" seems to mimic a similar scene from the much older Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest novel featuring the "jungle girl" character of Rima, from writer William Henry Hudson published in 1904. In that book, Rima can cross water over the backs of alligators (something Tarzan was also able to do from time to time.)
