Where Wolf? There Wolf!
Captain Triumph is a neat hero indeed. Eschewing the typical super-suit, he goes into battle wearing a t-shirt, jodphurs and some nifty boots. Nonetheless he looks properly heroic and even more when he's battling something as creepy as a rather large werewolf. Here we have a really dynamic cover by comic book legend Reed Crandall.
Here is a look at the complete story featuring some properly lovely Crandall artwork.
And here is a Crandall story from many years later, specifically hidden in the back the pages of Creatures on the Loose. This little atmospheric gem almost gets lost in Marvel's bombastic monster reprint mag. But it's a doozy and one of the earliest stories I ever encountered Crandall's great work.
