    Description

    Jungle Comics #1 (Fiction House, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. This issue has the only cover of the series drawn by highly collectible artist Lou Fine. This was the only jungle series on the stands at the time, starting what would soon be an entire genre. The issue's got the origin and first appearance of Kaanga, who had the lead feature in all 163 issues of this series (though we were confused to see that Kaanga has the umlaut on the first A of his name here, somehow that got switched to the second A shortly thereafter!). Also making their first appearances were the likes of Wambi the Jungle Boy (soon to star in his own series) and Captain Terry Thunder. Overstreet 2008 VF 8.0 value = $3,200; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,600. CGC census 4/08: 1 in 8.5, 2 higher. From the Kylberg Collection.
