*Marvel: In the early 1970’s, Marvel was trying to revive several defunct genres, including the jungle epics of years gone by; Jungle Action started out as an all-reprint title starring Fifties characters Lorna, Jann, and Tharn (a rechristened Lo-Zar, so dubbed to avoid provoking the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate). With new covers by Gil Kane and a fledgling Jim Starlin, these passed the time amiably, but with issue #5, someone had the idea of starring Marvel’s premier African hero, the Black Panther, in the title; and so was born one of the most controversial series of the 1970’s. Writer Don McGregor (aided by artists Gil Kane, Billy Graham and Rich Buckler) produced notoriously logghoreaic scripts with a florid descriptive style that went down well with those folks who wanted to push comics as literature. We have a virtually complete run of Jungle Action, lacking only issue #1, and with all of our latest additions being cents copies with no UK price or overstamp. Given the news of the upcoming Black Panther film, interest in T’Challa and his T’Chums has seldom been keener, so we anticipate this mid-to-high range of issues will sell with alacrity.
