Jungle Comics 045 -upgrade / re-scan / diff ver
Complete, but a chunk is torn from the front cover; the fc scan is from HAG.
This is a bigger & brighter re-scan of the same comic uploaded a few years ago.
The comic was poorly printed & cut, so that there's no outer border along the bottom half of every page, and thin slices are missing from almost every bottom-corner panel.
A freddyfly original production!
