CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN (1958) (#1-87) (DC) #38 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Challengers of the Unknown (1958) #38
"The Menace the Challengers Made" is written by Arnold Drake and drawn by Bob Brown. In deepest Africa, Prof, Ace, Rocky and Red ignore the advice of a local witch doctor and pursue a wanted criminal into a taboo region of the jungle. A brief gun battle erupts outside a cave where the crook has hidden himself away and a stray bullet unleashes a shower of strange goo on the escaped felon.

What emerges from the cave is no ordinary crook, however. Instead, it's a sticky monster which breaks down everything it touches, absorbs it and grows in size! Now the Challs have a real challenge on their hands. Then, in a back up tale titled "Time-Bomb on Holdout Island," the fearsome foursome face off against a group of Japanese soldiers who don't realize the war is over! (script by Ed Herron, art by Brown)
