Indexer Notes

Story is interrupted between pages 14 and 15, for two pages of “Gold Key Comics Club” material and a two-page ad for the CBS Television Network, comprising the four pages of the centerfold. Though soft-pedaled, it is clear that Black Pete has quickly and efficiently subjugated the citizens of Atlantis through addiction! Page 17, panel 4: “Daily he passes out these magic pills and the citizens could not bear to be without them!” The “magic pills” turn out to be sweet candies, and not anything objectionably harmful – but even sweet candies can actually become an addiction unto themselves. There is also a “flying submarine” – named as such in this story, a name and concept most likely borrowed from the then-popular TV series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
