Sunday Comics: Uncle Harry’s Gold Mine pt. 1

Today begins a ten-episode serial from 1960 that was successful enough to spawn a sequel two years later (sequels being a rarity for Treasure Chest). 

As always, these pages come from Catholic University’s online archive of Treasure Chest.

Personally, I’m instantly charmed by the deserted American castle, the offhand remarks (“Quiet, you’ll scare the bats!”), the water buffalo.  After two non-fiction serials in a row, it’s good to get back to a story again!
