Terrors of the Jungle 17, 1952

Cover art by L.B. Cole, I think this is one of his best. Published by Star Comics, despite the odd numbering this is the first issue of the series. This issue was referenced in Dr. Frederic Wertham's anti-comics screed Seduction of the Innocent. It contains reprints from Rulah, Jungle Goddess 21 -- even the first page, which is unusual for Fox reprints because Fox often had the first page on the inside front cover and reprints would usually start the first story on page two. The artwork looks like Jack Kamen and Matt Baker contributed.
