Jann of the Jungle in "With Fang and Talons" (Marvel;1973)

The last bronze age Jann of the Jungle reprint from Jungle Action #4 (Apr. 1973) was called "With Fang and Talons". Written by Don Rico and appropriately drawn by Jay Scott Pike, this adventure was originally presented in Jann of the Jungle #9 (Jan. 1956) by Marvel/Atlas Comics.

Thank you for following along with Jann, and rest assured that she will be back again someday. Hopefully you will also see her "Jungle Action" peers, Lorna & Tharn pop into the Catacombs at some point. This issues incredible Gil Kane cover is included as a bonus, and if you've got the money, it is currently for sale on eBay at a very reasonable price. I was considering purchasing this cover, but I just negotiated a sweetheart deal on some high end bronze age gems that was just too good to pass on (Giant-Size X-Men #1 and X-Men #94-101)

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.
