This story appears to have been made by cutting and pasting other stories together. Hatuglangi, marauding pygmies, the Sacred Skull, and a gorilla kidnapping Ann all have nothing to do with each other.
The Red Panther acquires a new costume and leopard companions in this story. The costume consists of a leopard-print loin cloth and a leopard headdress. No explanation is given for either change.
The ink lines seem heavier than those in earlier issues, casting some doubt on the Kiefer credit.
