Joe Barton in "Jungle Guns" (Ziff-Davis;1950)

Happy Independence Day! As you may have noticed, I’ve been enjoying these wonderful Joe Barton stories, so let me back up just a bit, and present his very first outing from Wild Boy #10 [1] (1950); originally published by Ziff-Davis, and illustrated by industry legends Irv Novick and Bernard Sachs. “Jungle Guns” tasks our intrepid jungle adventurer with leading Mr. Heinlin and his wife, Olga, into the Congo to sow revolution amongst the African colonies. Of course, Joe Barton thinks that he has only been hired to guide them through the jungle on safari. Trouble ensues. This story appears courtesy of "Comic Book Plus" [formerly; please go donate to their worthy endeavor] 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!
