Comic story about a group of explorers/tourists on another planet who are engulfed by a large semi-sentient life form (eg a slime mold?). They are able to communicate, quarrel etc. but cannot escape (at least for a while). Read this at least 40 years ago, any help appreciated...

Sounds like Damon Knight's "Four In One" where they fall into the mold and are dissolved except for the brains and nerves. Eventually they learn to control the thing, and make limbs and such.
