Ty-Gor, Son of the Tiger "In the American Jungle" (MLJ;1940)

Taken as a baby, Tyrone Gorman was offered as a living sacrifice to tigers in the jungles of Malaysia. Instead, the tigress Malma raised him. "Ty-Gor" was unknowingly heir to a vast fortune back home while he roamed the jungle accompanied by Malma. In this story from Blue Ribbon Comics #8 (Dec.1940); originally published by MLJ/Archie Comics, Joan Davis & her father continue their efforts to civilize the son of the tiger. "In the American Jungle” is written Joe Blair and illustrated by Mort Meskin. 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 belongs to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
