Jo-Jo, Congo King in "The Feathered Serpent" (Fox; 1949)

Today's classic tale from Jo-Jo, Congo King #23 (Jan.1949); originally published by Fox Feature Syndicate, is called "The Feathered Serpent". This story opens with a terrific splash page image of Jo-Jo (and Tanee) being imperiled by the beastie of the title. Ignore the credit for "Stan Ford" (that's a company pseudonym) and although the GCD credits the artwork solely to Matt Baker, there are many panels that could easily be attributed to the great Jack Kamen, and hey – both creators worked on this feature (so it’s anyone’s guess). 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. Enjoy!
