Morgo the Mighty. Morgo the Mighty was created by the pseudonymous “Sean O’Larkin” and appeared in eight stories in The Popular Magazine in 1930, beginning with “Morgo the Mighty” (The Popular Magazine, Aug. 2, 1930).

Morgo the Mighty is a Jungle Hero. James Cooper, an English boy of nine, is separated from his parents while they are exploring the Himalayas. Cooper falls off a cliff and lands, mostly unhurt, in a cave system, which leads to a fantastic subterranean world, full of troglodytes, flying bat-men, dinosaurs, and other monsters. Cooper grows up to be a hard young man and takes the name of “Morgo.” He uses his knife, bow, and club with ferocious aplomb.
