- Tragg and the Sky Gods
"Tragg and the Sky Gods" was a
comic booktitle published by Gold Key Comicsin the mid 1970s. The series was created by writer Donald Glutand artist Jesse Santos. Later, artist Dan Spieglewould work on the title.
The character first appeared in "
Mystery Comics Digest" #3, published in April 1972. His next appearance was in "Mystery Comics Digest" #9 in January, 1973. A series, "Tragg and the Sky Gods" would then run from #1 in June, 1975 until #8 in February, 1977. The last original Tragg story appeared in "Gold Key Spotlight" #9 in September, 1977. Whitman, the successor to Gold Key, would later reprint the first issue as #9, in May, 1982.
Tragg and the Sky Gods was a mix of science-fiction and prehistoric man. The book told of a group of advanced aliens who landed on earth in the distant past, and who experimented on the
Neanderthalsthey found on earth, producing two Cro-magnons, who would become Tragg and his mate, Lorn. Tragg and Lorn would thus be the ancestors of all modern humans. Don Glut tied Tragg into other series he created at Gold Key, by having Tragg's neanderthal brother Jarn appear in Dagar the Invincible.
