Story:'Golgotha': Golgotha is a young tyrannosaur and son of Satanus. He has been bought by Mike Molasses, a young martian colonist, to be the first hunting tyrannosaur of Mars, on Damnation island. But this is the kind of hunting where the bored Jet-set choose to be a man-hunt. During such a hunt, a horde of tyrannosaurs freed themselves lead by Golgotha. The horde managed to pass the bridge separating the island from the rest of Mars. The secret of the island was out so the warriors were called in. Ignoring his father protest and bribing attempts, Hammerstein sentenced Mike to death and Deadlock executes him. Hammerstein has an idea to lure Golgotha and his horde, they will use the female tyrannosaurs, Salome, Jezebel and Delilah. But Mike's father has decided to make him pay for the death of is son (6 pages).
Comments:I don't own this particular prog, but some GN reprints a one page 'Flesh' file before this strip regarding Old One-eye, and Satanus. This story introduces Damnation island, an island surrounded by sand seas and the cybo-whales that travel through these sand.
