"The Origin of Wild Boy, Prince of the Jungle" (Ziff-Davis;1950)















The Grand Comics Database has no information on the story credits for this exciting Dec.1950 issue of Wild Boy #1 from Ziff-Davis, but thanks to his son, David, we do know that the great Norman Saunders painted the cover for this otherwise well-drawn issue (which is included today, along with the interesting frontispiece featuring fun jungle facts).

The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Hurry on back tomorrow when the Catacombs will be participating in a special one-day-only crossover with Pappy's Golden Age Comics Stories (see Links) called "Apes of Ape-ril". See you on Friday.

Enjoy!

Can't we just call this Tarzan lite or something like that. Sure, ER Burroughs never pushed the stories as far as the comics from the latter-half of the century did, but we have to give him a lot of credit for creating the whole "jungle man turned native" genre.

Cheers!
