Number 2181: Jungle Boy comes up to bat
Jungle Boy, like all Atlas heroes of the era, butts heads with a communist. The wild-eyed commie spouts his goofy plans to Jungle Boy. For one thing, he is going to kill all the natives, “one by one!” He is going to inject all of the animals with a “certain serum,” that will make them turn on the American soldiers “when the call comes for the communist revolution!” This Red is full of silly notions and screwball schemes.
Oh , and there is a giant bat, and a caveman, also. All in six pages.
Writer unknown, but the art is by John Romita. From Jungle Action #2 (1954):
