An adaptation of the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. It's a book that I have never read, so my analysis of the adaptation is on the free-form side.

Ramblin' Jim was a short-lived series in the Little Orphan Annie vein, but featuring a young boy, Jim. Appropriate to the title of the series, it jumped around, rambling between the pages of More Fun and Adventure Comics.
