Thanks very much for taking the time to look, Westy. Much appreciated. It was from an older family member's weekly Tigers I feel fairly sure I saw this, and I remember the Johnny Cougar strip well. This was definitely a group of kids being observed by some kind of creature, with a hairy hand or claw, that being the cliffhanger final panel at least once. The haunted house storyline sounds like my best bet; you say you don't have that "issue" yet, but did this story run over a *few* weeks?Westy wrote: Hi Raven,
The Tigers appear in Tiger from 16th October 1971 to 5th October 1974 inclusive.
I’ve never read the story myself but, as I’m off work today, own all bar 2 of those issues and have them to hand, I skimmed through them, glancing at The Tigers’ pages for a ‘scary hairy creature’. Unfortunately I didn’t find one. The nearest I got was in October 1972 where the gang encountered a ‘monster’ which turned out to be an escaped hippo...
Over Christmas 1973 the gang visited a haunted house which might have homed a creature but unfortunately I don’t have that particular issue – yet.
I wonder if you might be thinking of a Johnny Cougar story from April 1973 where the redskin wrestler and his beatnik pal Splash Gorton stumbled across a tribe* of sasquatch during a trip to Canada?
Sorry I couldn’t lay that to rest for you.
Thanks also for the dates of the strip. It was the only one I really liked in Tiger at that time.
