Jan of the Jungle in "The Way of Right" (Fiction House; 1949)

In the great Indian wilderness, Jan of the Jungle (also known as "The Wolf Boy") grows weary of the instructions of his animal friends, and strikes out on his own little aware of the perils that lie in his path. In this previously untitled story that I've dubbed "The Way of Right", Jan narrowly avoids the pitfalls of his actions, even as he lends a helping hand in a golden age tale from Rangers Comics #48 (Aug.1949), originally published by Fiction House. The story is signed "Coleman Hart", but the excellent artwork is by Enrico Bagnoli. You may also notice how much this feature regularly borrows from Rudyard Kipling's classic novel, "The Jungle Book" in this tale. 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!
