The Jungle Action Cover Gallery!

Here are the four pre-Black Panther covers from Marvel Comics bronze age series, Jungle Action. These issues represented 1950s-era material featuring Lorna, Tharn and Jann of the Jungle, before T'Challa took over the title for the remainder of its acclaimed 1970's run.

The cover artists are listed as follows: #1 by "Big" John Buscema; #2 by Gil Kane; #3 by Jim Starlin & Frank Giacoia; #4 by Kane & Giacoia. The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for these amazing covers. Note: the copyright for these issue, all contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.

Worth getting for the Kane covers alone. A pity Marvel didn't actually tap him to illustrate the insides of more Jungle books.

True enough. But I was very happy with is John Carter Warlord of Mars material. Later on he did quite a few Ka-Zar covers and then...there is the TALOS one shot he did for DC in the late 80's or so. Gil Kane will always be one of the greatest.
