Jungle Jo in "Valley of the Demon Monsters" (Star; 1952)

Jungle Jo returns in an adventure from Blue Bolt Weird Tales #116 (Dec.1952); reprinted by Star Publications, but originally published as "Forbidden Valley" in Jungle Jo #2 (July 1950) which had been issued by Fox. No story credits exist for the writer or artists behind "Valley of the Demon Monsters" and with that title it’s just got to be dinosaurs, right? Jo might be a lame excuse for a Cold War jungle lord, but this is easily the best looking of his stories that have appeared here. The Catacombs gratefully acknowledges "The Digital Comic Museum", as the source of this classic comic story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belongs to the original publisher and/or creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes. Enjoy!
