Red Robes and Cultists, 2014 by Terence E. Hanley  :arrow: https://tellersofweirdtales.blogspot.com/2014/10/red-robes-and-cultists.html
The illustrated history of robed cultists on the covers of Weird Tales pulp magazine, from 1928 to 1952

Superman, Jungle Drums (1943) contains elements possibly inspired by the narratives and cover art style of Weird Tales,
as well as some of the works of HP Lovecraft. The costume looks similar to the example from Seabury Quinn' 1934 tale,
"The Red Knife of Hassan" with cover art by Margaret Brundage. The scenes are also reminiscent of Lovecraft's own tones and racism. 
"...and a face that conjured up thoughts of unspeakable Congo secrets and tom-tom poundings under an eerie moon... " “Herbert West: Reanimator”
