Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "The Resbian Affair Part 2"

This story is reprinted from More Fun Comics #15.

Lorenz the Gavonian spy has been arrested by the Resbian military and is already found guilty and sentenced to face a firing squad at dawn. Sandra cases out the jail-fortress; it's well-set up and well-guarded, but apparently an elderly fruit vendor has the run of the place, entering and leaving at will. Sandra follows the old lady to her shabby dwelling, and pays her a lot of money for her fruit-basket and clothes. Later that night, in her new disguise, Sandra charms her way into the prison's death-row, then pulls out a revolver, and forces one guard to swap places with the condemned Lorenz. But another guard has overheard, and stealthily approaches, pistol at the ready.

In the Resbian prison, Sandra has freed Lorenz from his cell, but their escape is thwarted by the arrival of a guard with a pistol. Lorenz pounces on the guard and punches him out. Sandra and Lorenz dump this guy in Lorenz's former cell, along with the other knocked-out guard, steal their uniforms, disguise themselves, and try to find their way out, thru the prison's many corridors and passageways. Sandra plans to leap into the river from a high wall, but there's a guard with a machine gun guarding the walkway. Lorentz sprints for the wall anyway, and makes it over the parapet. Then so does Sandra, while much ammunition is wastefully expended all around her.

Sandra and Lorenz swim to the opposite shore and climb out, but already their position has been spotted, and rifle fire is whining over their heads.

Dr. Occult and Zator are cornered in an Egyptian tomb as Koth's minions swarm into the chamber.
