Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "The Resbian Affair, Part 1"

On a secret mission in service of Gavonia's Princess Yonda, Sandra has adopted the fake identity of "Marie Montell" and gained an audience with the Premier of Resbia, to whom she offers to sell some information on Gavonia's defenses. Her information turns out to be already known to the Resbian government (or so he claims), but he pays "Marie" a retainer anyway. As she leaves, a shadowy gunman silently follows.

At her hotel room, the follower confronts her, at gunpoint. He is Lorenz, a Gavonian spy, and is very pleased to have captured this traitor! But Sandra distractingly tells him about her arrangement with Yonda, while also stealthily grabbing a heavy paperweight off the shelf behind her, then pitches it into the gunman's head for an instant knock out!

When he regains his wits, Sandra has the gun, and she tries again to make friends; this time he believes her. But just then a Resbian military officer, and two riflemen, burst into the room and arrest Lorenz, but not "Marie".

Dr. Occult and Zator were flying thru the supernatural realm on their way to visit The Seven when they were attacked in mid-air by the ravenous monsters of the occult world, and Koth, their master.

Seven cloud-like figures materialize in a protective ring around the two men, and engage Koth in a mystic battle of wills. The Seven begin to fade from sight, but Occult and Zator throw their own mental energy into the fight, until their very brains ache, until Koth vanishes in a burst of flame! Zator and Occult resume their mystic journey, and eventually materialize in the hidden realm of the Seven. One of these majestic old wizards warns Occult that Koth is extremely dangerous. Occult volunteers to fetch a Magic Belt from a closely-guarded Egyptian Tomb. Dressed in a costume with a cape, and entrusted with a magic sword, Occult undertakes this quest and Zator accompanies him.

This time they fly thru the supernatural realm unmolested by the Ether Entities, because of the Sign of the Seven that they each wear on their chests. They materialize in the desert, at night, outside a large Egyptian pyramid. Their arrival there is reported to Koth, who gloats that they will be well received.

Bailey is pretty angry too; he charges at the Tiger's throne, but steps on an electrified plate and is jolted unconscious. Kean throws his own jacket onto the plate, broad-jumps onto it, and springs into the Purple Tiger's face and snatches his handgun away! But the hooded gangster has given orders for his henchmen to finish off Doris, in a situation like this, so Kean hands him back his gun. But Sandy spots the villain's hand moving on another switch, and he leaps again, this time leaving a trap-door and again landing on the Tiger. This time he just punches him out, unmasks him, swipes his entire outfit, and takes his place on the throne. Bailey stows the real Tiger behind the throne then plays possum on the floor.

Meanwhile in the next room, the Purple Tiger's dirtbag henchmen are staging a coup, and led by Burke they burst in, brandishing revolvers, to confront the supposed Purple Tiger.
