The cover really does not reflect any of the interior features and is very likely an Iger Shop pastiche of a "typical" Planet Comics cover.

Indexer Notes

The next appearance of The Lost World is in PLANET COMICS (Blackthorne) #1; The story title is taken from the cover blurb. JV - it wouldn't surprise me at all to find out that Al Williamson was involved in this story.
