"Fangs the Wolf Boy" (Holyoke; 1948)

This classic eight page comics story is from Sparkling Stars #33 (March 1948), which was originally published by Holyoke during the golden age. The identity of the creative team is unknown to me, so if someone else has any idea - please post this information in a comment.

"Fangs" isn't exactly the best jungle adventurer that I've ever seen, but in trying to select stories that have a tentative thematic connection to my Halloween month posts from the massive library that Catacombs pal, Don Falkos has kindly provided, the mere fact that this Wolf Boy has prominent fangs showing gives him the edge - at least today. According to the Grand Comic Database, this is the characters final appearance.

As always, 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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Looks to be the signature of artist Sid Greene in the bottom left corner of the first page.

Damn. I totally missed that. Thanks for setting me straight.

Sid Greene is the artist and it does look like his work. I really enjoyed his run on Red Wolf for Marvel back in the 1970's.
