Synopsis

Mark Collins buys the diary of an explorer who vanished 150 years earlier and investigates a claim of untold wealth. He gains Tarzan's help, but is followed by two thieves who steal the diary. The criminals shoot Ashawa tribesmen guarding a sacred cave of ancient bones and find Slessinger's chest. Freedland then kills Shinner for the treasure, but then falls to his death as Tarzan smokes him out of the cave. Collins discovers the secret is Egyptian heiroglyphs revealing the location of Tutankhamun's tomb--a treasure now worthless.

Notes

Script credit reported at http://www.copyrightencyclopedia.com. Shinner is called 'Shiner' and Freedland is called 'Friedland' at various points in the story.

Synopsis

When Ziggy Zeigler shoots the leader of a buffalo herd, the wounded animal gores his leg and escapes. Zeigler insists his group continue the hunt and they enter Bushira tribal homelands the buffalo are sacred. Tarzan is drawn by war drums and convinces Chief Njoka that killing white men will lead to punishment, but Mkawa has already left to deliver justice. Tarzan follows, but is too late to save the first two men in the hunting group. While Tarzan fights to stall the warriors, Zeigler pushes on. The buffalo also pursues Zeigler and the pair, driven by revenge, die together.

Notes

The signature on this story is dated '77'. The signature is "elias & DEMETRIO", probably by a single letterer. There are various claims about the identity of 'Elias', including that he provided the script. However, it seems most likely this is Spanish artist Alfredo Elías Mondeja (who did Simba in Jaimito).
