Jann of the Jungle in "Rampage" (Marvel;1973)

We continue the bronze age reprints from Jungle Action #3 today, which was published in February 1973 by Marvel Comics. This adventure starring Jann of the Jungle was originally presented in Jungle Tales #1 September 1954, back when "Marvel" was still called Atlas Comics.

"Rampage" was once again written by Don Rico, but the art on this fine tale was provided by Art Petty, and the spiffy cover for Jungle Action #3 is beautifully drawn by the very much alive & well Jim Starlin (who I just had the great pleasure of meeting at the recent Heroes Convention in Charlotte, NC); however I must also mention that this cover illustration features inks by Frank Giacoia. The final "Jann of the Jungle" story from the Jungle Action series will be posted on Thursday of this week.

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.

Just a guess , but the pencils on the cover look very much like the work of Herb Trimpe. Any ideas?
