Dinosaurs break out of the Valley of Monsters, in the land of Pal-Ul-Don, a part of Tarzan’s fantasy Africa. The lost city of Cathne is threatened by the prehistoric beasts and their ape-like riders, the Torodons. We see Tarzan fighting off the menace while riding his giant eagle, Argus. It’s all in a day’s work for the original jungle lord.
Over the past few years I have shown several Tarzan stories, written by Gaylord Dubois and drawn by Jesse Marsh. They all take place in that Africa of the imagination. Nowadays we know that parts of the real Africa are threatened by quasi-military types who terrorize and murder. Over the years I have watched and read news stories of depredations and horror that make me think it would be better to be invaded by dinosaurs. Dinosaurs don’t shoot machine guns.
