Tom-Tom the Jungle Boy (Magazine Enterprises; 1947)

The twelve days of Christmas continues in the Catacombs with another Editors Choice feature, Tom-Tom the Jungle Boy along with his friends, Itchi and Tree-Trunk, return in this tale from Tick Tock Tales #24 (Dec. 1947), originally published by Magazine Enterprises.

I have no credited information on who the writer or artist was on this well-drawn strip. 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 creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

As a bonus, I've included a few Christmas covers in which Tom-Tom appeared, although none of his jungle stories featured any actual holiday elements. Following the brief four-pager (above) is the issues cover from December 1947, then in descending order, The Pixies #5 (Dec. 1948), The Adventures of Koko and Kola #6 (1946; a recycled cover from an earlier issues of Tick Tock Tales) and Tom-Tom #2 (a 1957 reissue); all by Magazine Enterprises. I am taking some time off for the rest of this week, but I will be back for my regular "Gal" Friday. Happy Holidays!
