*Marvel: Marvel’s 1970’s reprint line covered all bases, with stories of war, western, romance, funny-animals, and other moribund genres. One such title was Jungle Action, which, behind attractive new covers, re-presented 1950’s stories of such faded icons as Lo-Zar and Lorna the Jungle Girl. But with issue #5, all that changed – okay, #5 was still reprint, but it reprinted a Panther-centric Avengers issue, and paved the way for his all-new solo series beginning with #6! From the acclaimed and, let’s be polite, opinion-polarising team of Don McGregor and Billy Graham, the Panther’s series challenged stereotypes, invited new viewpoints, and broke boundaries – including, routinely, the boundary of how many words could, or should, be crammed onto a single page! We have every issue of the Panther’s Jungle Action run new in: issues #5-24, after which he went on into his first solo title under the hands of his co-creator Jack Kirby, and things took a decidedly different turn. But this is the series that established T’Challa as a solo star, and while the earlier issues aren’t all they might be condition-wise, many of the later ones have unusually nice VF/NM or even NM grades.
