"The Moloch Loch Monster" Special #3
Special#3: "The Moloch Loch Monster"
Barnaby and Loaker try to find the mythical Loch Monster of Moloch Falls.
Notes and References:
This is the third of the final six special issues of Barnaby and Loaker.
The Moloch Loch Monster was previously mentioned in issue#55: "Barnaby and Loaker Meet Molochstein". Barnaby dismisses the creature as a fiction while chatting to another Moloch myth, the troll-like Molochstein. This issue shows that the monster is actually real although Barnaby and Loaker remain unaware of it's existence.
The monster is based on the Loch Ness Monster, a legendary cryptid that inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.
The Moloch Loch has previously been seen in the background next to the twin peak mountains- Mount Moloculus and Mount Steinnus in issue#104: "Barnaby and Loaker" and isue#99: "Loaker In The Sky" as well as many others. This is the first issue that features the loch close up.
A Loch is the Irish and Scottish Gaelic word for a lake and a sea inlet.
