Synopsis for "I Discovered Gorgilla!"

Tales to Astonish Vol 1 12 001
A scientist mounts an expedition to Borneo in order to locate the remains of the missing link. He is surprised upon his arrival that the locals refer to the creature as living upon "midnight mountain". The natives have built an enclosure around the area ala Kong, so after his group scales the wall, they come face to face with Gorgilla. Initially, relations between human and missing link are antagonistic, but when a T-Rex shows up, Gorgilla decides he feels more of a kinship with the explorers and attacks the reptile. He is victorious, but tired and weak after the fight, and the scientists realize he could be easily captured. Since he saved their lives from the T-Rex, they grant him the peace of remaining in his native habitat.
