Joe Barton in "Trophy Hunter" (Ziff-Davis;1952)

Here is an entertaining backup strip from Wild Boy #6 (Apr.1952); originally published by Ziff-Davis, and well illustrated by a pair of industry legends, Irv Novick and Bernard Sachs. “Trophy Hunter” also debuts a new character in the Catacombs. Hunter and safari guide, Joe Barton appeared as a regular feature by Novick and Sachs in issues of "Wild Boy". In this tale, Barton has been hired by Leslie Bronn to go after the elusive white albino deer in the Nawali area of Africa. Trouble ensues when the local tribesmen discover that their sacred animal is the intended target and Bronn proves himself to be a tad unstable. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for these stories. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
