Jann of the Jungle in “The Killers of the Swamps” (Marvel;1957)

Jann of the Jungle returns to the Catacombs after an extended sabbatical in “The Killers of the Swamps” which is taken from Jann of the Jungle #17 (June 1957); originally published by Marvel Comics (when they were known as Timely).

This terrific short adventure has a a real pedigree of talent behind it. Don Rico wrote it. Al Williamson drew it and Ralph Mayo inked it. That is what you call a "quality" trifecta!

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.
