Golden Age Origin

Zaan of the Jungle (just like Oran of the Jungle) was lost in the African jungles as a child. He grew up strong, but that strength attracted attention from the wrong people including unscrupulous boxing promoters and slavers.

He traveled to America both to fight as a boxer and also to find his parents. He reunited with his father, and then traveled back to the jungle.


  • Zaan of the Jungle stories were edited re-prints of Oran of the Jungle's adventures that originally were published in Fight Comics.
