SUB-MARINER ANNUAL (1971) #2 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Sub-Mariner Annual (1971) #2
Cover by Bill Everett. Reprinting stories from the Silver Age classic Tales to Astonish. Written by Stan Lee with art by Gene Colan and Vince Colletta. The Sub-Mariner has been driven from the throne of Atlantis by the Warlord Krang and must quest for the sacred Trident of Neptune to restore his authority. But Lady Dorma’s life hangs in the balance as well and Namor must choose whether to save his people or the love of his life! First, in “When Fails the Quest!,” the Sub-Mariner finds his lady love surrounded by a horde of underwater demons known as the Faceless Ones. He must find a way to battle through the teeming thousands to free her before the creatures tear into the protective shielding she has hastily activated.

Meanwhile, Krang solidifies his power against an increasingly rebellious Atlantean populace by unleashing his terrible Robo-Tank and its Sense-Stun Rays on the protesters. One Atlantean, an ancient named Vashti, volunteers to ride out on seahorse to locate the Sub-Mariner and finds him in pitched battle for Dorma’s life. In “The End of the Quest!,” just as it seems Namor is to be defeated, Neptune himself intervenes and gives the Sub-Mariner his royal Trident as a symbol of his blessing. With Dorma gravely wounded by the Faceless Ones, he and Vashti rush back to Atlantis to try to stop the Warlord Krang from exacting terrible revenge on the innocent. In “Uneasy Hangs the Head..!,” the Sub-Mariner confronts the tyrant and his machines and delivers swift justice even as Dorma’s life begins to slip away. In the end, Namor exiles Krang, saves Dorma and is once again crowned Prince of Atlantis. But an undersea earthquake signals a new menace is already on the horizon!
