Wild Boy in "The Invaders" (Ziff-Davis;1950)

It has been more than a year since I last posted a Wild Boy story. Consider this a teaser too, since I've chosen his adventures to displace Cave Girl on Tuesdays for the entire month of August. As a reminder, a young boy named David escaped from his sinister uncle, who had hired natives to kill him, and that boy later became known as "Wild Boy".

This story is from Wild Boy, Prince of the Jungle #10 [actually #1] (1950); originally published by Ziff-Davis. The artwork is credited to Paul Hodge. In "The Invaders" Wild Boy and his panther, Daro, are pitted in battle against two men of evil and violence who've come trailing into their Lost City seeking an easy fortune.

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.
