One of my many cryptozoological correspondents, the indefatigable Håkan Lindh from Sweden, who first brought the Tarzan-Nandi bear story to my attention (see here), informed me yesterday that the Tarzan Sunday comic strip ran a 12-issue story on Tarzan’s historic meeting with the mokele-mbembe, beginning in #2842 (2 February 1986) and ending in #2855 (20 April 1986). The story’s artist was Gray Morrow, and its writer was Don Kraar.
Unlike the Nandi bear, which was referred to within the story as a chalicothere yet was drawn as being entirely ursine in appearance, the mokele-mbembe is depicted exactly as described by real-life eyewitnesses. Namely, a long-necked, long-tailed sauropod dinosaur lookalike.
As I haven’t seen the entire run of strips constituting this story, I have no information to hand concerning the plot, or even how it begins and ends. So if anyone out there could post details, I’d greatly welcome them.
