Ki-Gor versus Kaanga

This is one of the more interesting swipes I've seen in a while, because the cover of Jungle Comics was pretty obviously copied from an earlier issue of the Jungle Stories  Magazine. However both publications came from the same company, Fiction House, and the the two jungle lords, Ki-Gor and Kaanga are basically the same character. Kaanga was the comic book version of Ki-Gor but for some reason he was given a different name. Interesting to see that the cover composition was recycled. The artist flipped the image for some reason, but I've flipped it back so you can see how close the two pictures are.
