Clibo, Congo King in "Maneuvers and Murder" (Charlton; 1955)

"Go Ape Shit" Week continues with a silver age comics classic from Charlton Comics. Clibo, Congo King was a feature in Zoo Funnies Presents Nyoka the Jungle Girl #12 (Jul. 1955). There is currently no information on this issue in the Grand Comics Database, so your guess is as good as mine on who the unknown creators were. As a word of warning today, this story requires a lot of reading since it is "heavy" on the verbiage, but this issues decent cover is also included to ease the blow.

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.

possible that the story is a retooled previously published Jo-Jo Congo King. I know the story you ran earlier had undergone a similar treatment. Although, many of the Jungle Lords and Ladies are pretty interchangeable.

Chuck: Loving Ape Shit week. Wow, pity the poor letterer in this tale, eh? The speech balloons are forcing all the action into the corners. Cool art, though. But Damn! Those paragraph long sentences!
