Anthro #3

Anthro #3 (On Sale: September 3, 1968) has a cover by series creator Howie Post.

"Journey to the Island of Green" is written and drawn by Howie Post. As the story continues, Anthro and his family survive an attack by a race of sub-men. Ne-Ahn worries about surviving the long winter and decides to move his family to warmer climates once the weather improves. As Spring approaches, Anthro is sent to look for food to carry on the journey, but first he wants to see his girlfriend Embra. He tells her that his family will be moving, and she asks that he mark the trail for her people to follow. Her father Tugg then chases Anthro away.

Anthro returns to his family with fresh food and a horse "borrowed" from Tugg. The group then begins their journey to find a new home. Anthro marks the trail which eventually leads to a lush tropical valley. They find a tribe of advanced people with knowledge of architecture living there. When the people see Lart riding the horse, they believe he is a child of prophecy.
