Wambi the Jungle Boy in "Thundering Herds" (Fiction House;1940)
Sticking with the youthful contingent from the jungle again today, and "gal" Friday will stop by later as well. Wambi the Jungle Boy had an innate ability to communicate with the lower order, even when the animals made no sound at all. In fact, Wambi's best friends were an Indian-variety elephant named Tawn, and Ogg the Gorilla. All three are featured in "Thundering Herds" from Jungle Comics #4 (Apr.1940); originally published by Fiction House. The illustrator is Henry Kiefer, signed in the lower left corner of the splash panel as 'Karl Kief'. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story, although they are stamped as a Marble River Scan.
