Aquaman's Double Trouble!

Synopsis

Aquaman is repeatedly torn between dilemmas to save sea life, submarines, sinking ships, and more. Each time he makes a difficult choice, he finds the other choice was saved by an old seafarer who leaves three mysterious holes at every scene. When Aquaman himself is saved, the old man reveals he's King Neptune - with his three-pointed trident. Neptune retired when a new "King of the Sea" arrived - Aquaman!

You will find the genuine distinctive 100 page strip shown at left on the covers of, Century, Hundred Five-Score, All Favourites, Mighty, Lot-o-Fun, Supacomic, Bumper Western, Magic Moments, Twin Hearts, Heart to Heart Romances. This strip is your guarantee of full 100 page value. Beware of imitations."
