Hello reader! Tony the Tiger here. It's TIGER LEAGUE OF AMERICA week here on DIAL B for BLOG, and I'm hosting today's installment, featuring a grrrrreat story titled "I Was The Burma Tiger Man!" from .September 1959.

The cover, shown left, was drawn by Dick Dillin and Sheldon Moldoff. The story was drawn by Ruben Moreira. He signed the splash page, so we can be sure of that. But the writer of this terriffic tiger tale is unknown! Maybe one of our readers can supply the writer's name. I'll give a bowl of Kellogg's Sugar-frosted Flakes to the person who can name the writer!

Oh, and by the way -- in case you haven't figured it out yet, (and if you haven't, give up all hope of ever working as a gag writer) I'm hosting today's issue because, as far as Adventures go, this one is my GRRRRREATEST!
MY GREATEST ADVENTURE #59 (SEPTEMBER 1959)
,
FIRST OF ALL, WHERE IN THE WORLD IS BURMA?

Burma
was conquered by Britian over a period of 62 years (1824-1886) and incorporated into England's Indian Empire. Burma was administered as a province of India until 1937 when it became a separate, self-governing colony. Burma became independent in 1948.

The famed Burma Tiger (actually a Bengal tiger) has become an endangered species. Only 150 tigers are believed to survive in the Burmese wilds. In 1995, Burma was designated a high-priority tiger conservation area, yet it continues to be a hotspot for trade in tiger and other endangered species parts.

Wow! Is this story GRRRRREAT or what?!?! (OK, that's the last time I'll use that joke.) Hi reader, pencil sketch version of Tony the Tiger here! And I've got my eye on that box of Kellogg's Sugar-frosted Flakes down there. Yum!

Anyway... the hunters manage to shoot the Burma Tiger Man, but they don't kill him. (Of course. If they did this would be a really short story.) Somehow, they manage to subdue him, and put him in a handy and strangely .available portable tiger cage!

He is taken to the village and displayed, as the caption says, "like... like an animal!" Hey, waaaaait a minute. I'M an animal! What's so bad about being displayed like... like an animal? What an outrageous statement. I may sue. But back to the story... "STAND BACK! The Tiger Man is vicious!"
