    Jungle Comics #1 (Fiction House, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. This long-running title was started off in grand fashion with the series' only Lou Fine cover! This was the only jungle series on the stands at the time, but it would run into lots and lots of competition just a few years in the future. 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 Camilla, Queen of the Lost Empire; Wambi the Jungle Boy; Tabu, Wizard of the Jungle (complete with origin); and Captain Terry Thunder and the Congo Lancers, all of whom were in almost every issue of this title's run. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $3,185. CGC census 9/06: 1 in 8.0, 2 higher.
