Jan of the Jungle in "The Whisper Chamber" (Fiction House;1949)

In the great Indian wilderness, Jan of the Jungle (also known as "The Wolf Boy") encounters many dangers and sometimes he gets a bit testy about unwanted intrusions into his rustic home. In a previously untitled story that I've dubbed "The Whisper Chamber", Jan and his ape friend, Kaang, come to the aid of a beautiful princess in a golden age tale from Rangers Comics #46 (Apr.1949), originally published by Fiction House. 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 belongs to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!

WOW, that is a really superior jungle/adventure comic... great artwork! The animal renderings were so cool.

Kids had some very well-crafted entertainment back the Age golden!
