JEFF WARING

JEFF WARING

Jeff Waring, initially cartooned by Murray Karn then later by Jerry Lazare, was a dashing Amazonian adventurer who appeared in Wow Comics. In the first instalment, Jeff takes Kay, Prof. Allen’s lovely daughter, to be his faithful companion, and together they thwart the professor’s enemies and preserve the treasure of a lost city for the proper authorities. Over the course of the series, the stories revolved around a progression of animal aggressors, lost cities (gold, emerald and platinum) and harried native peoples.

The character survived the transition from black and white to colour and from Bell Features & Publishing Co. to F.E. Howard Publications, appearing in Super Duper Comics in 1947.
