Notes

This story appears to be from the Superman newspaper strip, but is similar to The Captive of the Amazons in Action Comics 266, July 1960. It is probably due to cross-fertilisation between the two mediums, and that this story is the original. Includes approximately two pages of material from this story, merged into one page. Read the page here.
