Tonight, I read Kaanga #8, an IW/Super reprint from the Silver Age. Kaanga was originally a character from a Golden Age company called Fiction House. IW reprinted many chata ters from defunct publishing houses. Kaanga appears in three stories in this issue - all stories with a by-line of Frank Riddell. Kaanga is a blond Tarzan with a mate named Ann. The first story is the best in which Kaanga and Ann fight a murderous outcast named Captain Strong and his twin daughters . The evil family exhibits control over animals which make them formidable opponents to our heroes. In the other two stories, Kanga and Ann confront a gang of killers and a would be sorceress who plans to dupe a rich friend of Kaanga. Good wins out in these enjoyable jungle stories. By the way, the artwork is very good - the jungle scenery and the animals are so very well drawn that you think that you are out there in the wild. Back-up story is Fantomah , a jungle girl similar to Sheena, battling slave traders. A very entertaining read that I picked up at Half-Price Books for $3. Lately, it seems that this chain is selling quite a few Silver Age comic books at affordable prices.
