Spin-off from the USA 1964-1968 tv series (which was itself based on the 1961 film of the same name): colour comic strips.featuring two stories, ''Monsters Of The Moho'' and ''The Last Survivor''.
''this series concerned the exploits of the experimental submarine Seaview; it starred Richard Basehart and David Hedison. Early episodes had fairly conventional stories involving secret agents and threats from unfriendly foreign powers, but later the plots became increasingly fantastic: not only were the crew faced with such dangers as giant whales, giant jellyfish, giant octopuses and giant ''things'', but their submarine was regularly invaded by a variety of esoteric menaces ranging from sentient seaweed to the ghost of a U-boat captain, other uninvited guests including a lobster man, a mummy, a leprechaun, a blob and a mad robot. Throughout, Basehart and Hedison kept straight faces. Abbott's special effects won several Emmy awards'' (John Brosnan/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
