Shades of * Elmo Lincoln, here is something that you won't see too terribly often in the Catacombs, an actual mainstream story from a major current publisher. DC Comics has probably reprinted this tale featuring the Caped Crusaders seven ways from Sunday, but since it has a jungle-themed element let's just roll with the punches.
Batman & Robin star in "The Jungle Man of Gotham City" from Detective Comics #315 (May 1963), illustrated by Sheldon Moldoff and Charles Paris (despite Bob Kane's credit appearing on the splash page), and written by "who knows" (maybe Jack Schiff/?). This story is typical of Batman's pre-new look period and is a great example of the kind of superhero stories that you will never see again. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story.

(* Elmo Lincoln starred as the first movie Tarzan of the Apes in a silent film released in 1918. His classic appearance is highly reminiscent of the Jungle Man character featured in this fun story.)
