Mark has to leave Comic-Con so he can rescue Sergio from Chula Vista. Sergio meanwhile is trapped in the snake house. To escape he jumps out the window and into a dumpster. He is forced to get out of his soiled clothes and wear an old racoon pelt. Back in Pal-Ul-Don, Tarzan and Groo face off with the slavers. The two enter a fray that easily defeats them. Tarzan tells Groo that they need an army and Groo goes off to get one. Tarzan thinks he decided to leave and takes his prisoners to the nearest village. There he warns the inhabitants to leave while he goes to the slavers camp. He captures the leader. Sergio has trouble getting anyone to stop when the park opens and help him. He does get his picture taken and posted on social media. This is how Mark knows what happened to Sergio. An activist looking to close down the park approaches Mark about using the plight of Sergio to accomplish this. Mark has to go back to Comic-Con to host more important panels. Groo and Rufferto make it back to the village of Ungara to recruit an army. The village is not happy about Groo returning.
Rufferto imitates a leopard to scare some monkeys. Only a real leopard is right behind him.
This issue has Tarzan and Groo meet. Both think the other is strange and Groo is mystified by the mysterious thundersticks of the slavers. Interesting that Tarzan knows Groo’s language. Anyway, a real fun issue with plenty of humor including at the expense of Sergio. Absolutely love this series.
