Captain Marvel Jr. #35 (January 1946, "Return of the Antbear)

This tale is a followup on the story " CMJ Meets the Antbear" CMJ #33. [See commentary for June 11, 2011]. This is one of those stories that doesn't take itself too seriously with the famous Fawcett sense of humor playing the major role in the story. The antbear (acting as a bloodhound) leads Cap Jr. to an anthill instead of the stolen panda is a delightful twist.  While the Blue Boy is given the antbear at the conclusion the animal does not appear again. He is one those POF (Pets of Freddy) that we only see for a story or two and never to be seen again. Art by Bud Thompson.
