Congo King (Green Publ.;1946)

Yesterday, I had a wild hair moment and decided to run golden age jungle comics stories until Friday, and then just cap off the whole week with an appropriate & sexy "Gal" Friday selection that ties into my spontaneous "Ape Shit Week" theme.

My only prerequisite was that each story feature a gorilla somewhere within its pages. This tale comes from Green Publishing's Atomic Comics #4 (Jul-Aug.1946), starring their also-ran Congo King character. The really nice artwork is credited to "Taylor Tibett" and that's about all the info that I have folks. Jack Kamen provides the non-ape cover, which is provided as a bonus.

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.
