Dorothy Lamour

Some of Wood's earliest work appeared in two 1950 issues of DOROTHY LAMOUR-JUNGLE PRINCESS, a comic ostensibly based on the sarong-wearing actress of the Hope/Crosby Road pictures but really just an excuse for yet another of the then-rampant jungle girl comics.

The Stewart/Vadeboncoeur Checklist indicates the likelihood of Harry Harrison also working on the first story and Sid Check on the second. GCD adds the cool trivia that on the last page of this second story, there are incongruous initials. The W-A-W is presumably for Wallace Allen Wood.

Anyone want to venture a guess as to what, if anything, the other letters refer to? Check out the stories at  They're far from the best examples of his work but his style was already developing and in just a few years would be light years beyond this.
