    1. In my head-cannon, I now imagine that Ken Masters is the pilot that Namor tosses out of the airplane at the end of The Sub-Mariner story. Ken was flying back to the Amazon to liberate more diamonds from the “savages.”

  1. A most excellent radio play that covers and deconstructs this jungle adventure. I listened to it twice.

    In two days: More problematic jungle adventure! Fire and Water, we’ve got it all!

  2. That story was wrong in so many ways. Is it just me or does it look like some of the “savages” are depicted as having horns on their heads!? In particular, I’m looking at the page where the “heroes” are being chased to the airplane.

    Regardless of the story’s quality, your coverage of it was thing of beauty. Well done.

  3. I’ll echo pretty much everyone else here to say well-done, Xum. I thoroughly enjoyed the retelling of the story in the form of yet another comic-booky narrative superimposed over it.
    And I particularly loved your voice for Crafton. Again, great job!

  4. Great job, Xum! Is Mortimer Claptrap a distant relative of P.J. Frightful? These kind of stories seem to work better when the protagonists are ducks.
