Gorgo In The Land of The Lost

Gorgo was directed by Eugène Lourié from a script by John Loring and Daniel Hyatt and premiered this day in 1961. It was turned into a short lived comic book series by Charlton noted for paying their writers and artists next to nothing, and printing their books on the cheapest pulp paper possible. Despite this, artist Steve Ditko still managed to chop out a passable story. I’ve cut out the first half of the story that’s just filler to make the page count.
