Synopsis

While enjoying a quiet life with his new fiance Mary Wilson, Tim is approached for help by the Guinea Dust Gold Mines which has lost two plane-loads of gold in mysterious circumstances. Investigating, Tim also falls prey to the techology of the raiders. After his plane crashes, Tim is taken captive but his co-pilot Hawk escapes. With the help of a native girl, Wilson saves Tim.

Notes

While the issue is unsigned, there is a distinctive Powis 'W' from his signature in the bottom left panel -- "will want". It appears in random spots throughout the issue.
