Jungo the Man-Beast in "The Giant Jaguar" (Holyoke;1946)

Jungo the Man-Beast makes an overdue return visit to the Catacombs in this untitled story from Sparkling Stars #17 (Sept.1946); originally published by Holyoke. The writer and/or artist is also unknown. Phil Gant was famous for his movie serial role of "Jungo" until a blow on the head convinced him that he actually was the very jungle lord that he had been portraying. Previously Jungo and his girlfriend, Gloria Dean, were cast adrift in the hold of a cargo ship on the verge of sinking. Don't you just love those old cliffhanger endings that aren't really endings?

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 publishers and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
