Jan of the Jungle in "The Glowing God" (Fiction House;1949)

In the wilderness of India, Jan the Jungle Boy encounters many dangers. Today he and his ape friend, Kaang, encounter an unfortunate incursion by "manlings" in an untitled tale from Rangers Comics #45 (Feb. 1949), originally published by Fiction House. I've christened this super-nice story, "The Glowing God", but you'll have to read until the very end to see why this was the logical choice. The story is signed "Coleman Hart", but the excellent artwork is by Enrico Bagnoli. 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 the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
