Jann of the Jungle in "Jungle Vengeance!" & "The Fangs of the Black Orchid!" (1957; Atlas Comics)

The twelve days of Christmas begins in the Catacombs today with a few gifts from ye olde editor. Following up on a promise to at least one regular follower, here are the remaining two Jann of the Jungle stories from Jann of the Jungle #16 (Apr. 1957). I ran another Jann adventure ("Cry Danger!") during my recent crossover 'Week of Jungle Girls' event with Pappy's Golden Age Comics blog; and just like that fine classic, "Jungle Vengeance" is written by Don Rico, drawn by Al Williamson and inked by Ralph Mayo. Today's second bonus Jann adventure was also written by Mr. Rico, but full art on this tale is provided by the great Bill Everett (creator of the Sub-Mariner).

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.

Chuck: Mighty fine, sir. I love the artwork in the first story a great deal! Jann looks so . . . womanly and alive, particuarily page 3 and 5. I always loved that about Williamson - his figures were always so compltely unstiff. Just beautiful post. -- Mykal
