What strange treachery lurked..?
Genre

Characters
Voodah; Zanzi; Cheeko (monkey); L'Monda; Atabi
Synopsis
A great band of gorillas led by two men in gorilla suits attacks a village and kills and capture half the tribe.

Indexer Notes

Cataldo is credited on both pencil and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the eyes and eyebrows of faces, and the little awkward way of standing point to him. Much copying from Hogarth's Tarzan. Cataldo is very often mixed up with Ruben Moreira, and JVJ has both Moreira and Cataldo here, but this is only Cataldo. Compare the signed Cataldo story in issue #17, and there is no difference. Moreira's body movements are much more writhing and twisting with long arms and legs as in Kaänga.
