Jann of the Jungle in "Double Danger" (Marvel;1972)

Jungle Action #1 was published in October 1972 by Marvel Comics. The first few issues featured reprints of some of the jungle characters from their old Atlas Comics period (the 1950's). Alongside Lorna the Jungle Girl and Tharn (aka "Lo-zar"), there was this early adventure starring Jann of the Jungle, which was originally presented in Jann of the Jungle #14 (Dec. 1956).

The script was written by Don Rico and the art is by Jay Scott Pike. The cover for Jungle Action #1 is drawn by the late, great Marvel Comics master John Buscema (so I've just gotta include that). In fact, I'm gonna run all four Jann of the Jungle stories from the Jungle action series over the next few days in homage to one of my favorite periods in comics history - the Bronze Age.

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 creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
