By popular demand, Tammy had the Storyteller from “The Strangest Stories Ever Told” explain his origins, which were told in Tammy 12 June 1976. The story is reproduced here. It is quite surprising to learn The Storyteller had a daughter. Art by John Armstrong.

  1. An interesting take on the Storyteller! I guess the implication is that he started out very much a sceptic and a scientist, only to be lured to the mysterious unknown… quite a Mulder and Scully set up!

    I was amused at the unrealistic portrayal of paleontological excavation too. In the process of fossilization, bones don’t just get encrusted in stone, but actually replaced by stone. And I’d hope they’d have a few more people helping out and making sure no bits of bone were damaged or mislayed amongst all the debris that was removed! But interesting too, to see this sort of dig – not a usual sight in these comics I don’t think.

    1. I didn’t think putting the skull in a private pond to wash it was accurate portrayal of archaeology either.

      Wonder how the bullet got into the dinosaur’s skull, and why a silver bullet?

      1. They really left that bullet as mysterious as possible (or indeed, entirely unexplained / unexplainable). They could have gone for a UFO type explanation. that might have hung together a bit better.
