Synopsis for "Terror in the Jungle"

On Blackhawk Island, Blackhawk receives a letter from Kuani Moaro, chief of a primitive tribe on Anatoa Island in the South Seas. Moaro attended school in London and met Blackhawk there. He has now returned to Anatoa only to find that a Soviet agent, Capt. Droski, has gained influence there and installed his own chief. Moaro is being held prisoner, but managed to get a letter out. The Blackhawks land on Lanimuru Atoll and, leaving Chuck and Chop Chop to guard the planes, take rafts to Anatoa where they are quickly captured by the natives. They are taken to Droski, his puppet chief Aleano, and a young woman named Lona. Droski has them tied to posts where the natives will use them as targets for their spears after dinner. Lona tells Droski that she wants the insignia from Blackhawk's jacket, so he gives her a knife to cut it off. She discreetly cuts the ropes and, instead of cutting the insignia, cuts off Blackhawk's belt radio and lifts it up so he can tell Chuck to buzz the island. Aleano notices this and orders his men to attack. Chuck flies overhead and the fearful natives hide in the jungle. The Blackhawks escape and hear someone calling them from a hut. Inside they find the captive Kuani. Kuani explains that Droski wanted to kill him, but Aleano was too superstitious to allow it. Instead, they told the natives that Kuani was dead while locking him in a hut they said was haunted. Kuani tries to make a break for the jungle so that he can show his people that he is alive, but he is shot by Droski and his men. Olaf carries him back to safety as Chuck, Chop Chop, and Lona arrive with weapons. Lona and Kuani are actually engaged, and she has told the natives that the Blackhawks were there to help their true chief. The Blackhawks force the Soviets into the open where they overpower Droski's men, while the natives spear Droski and Aleano. As he is recovering, Kuani invites the Blackhawks to his wedding.

Later, the Blackhawks find a large metallic object with four legs walking across Blackhawk Island, crushing everything in its path. They watch it walk into the ocean. Realizing it must have come from a nearby sub, the Blackhawks take to the sky to find it. When they return to the Island, they see three of the Octopus Machines standing there. The crew manning the machines have left them in order to look around. The Blackhawks defeat the men. Blackhawk, Andre, and Chuck force one of the men to take them to the sub on one of the machines. They overpower the sub’s crew, but Dimitri and Avik escape in another Octopus Machine. The captured man, realizing that they would destroy him with the Blackhawks, turns the Octopus Machine’s flame ray on Dimitri and Avik’s machine, killing them before they can kill him.

Synopsis for "Circles of Suicide"

On Blackhawks Island, the Blackhawks hear a loud explosion from the hangar. They rush outside and see a flying saucer crash into one of the runways. They take to the air and force a third Flying Circle down into the ocean. They take the patient back to the island and find that he is a patient from the mental asylum on Tumaro Atoll. Dr. De Roski had attempted to lease Blackhawk Island and build the asylum there, but when the lease was turned down, he put it on Tumaro. Blackhawk and Andre take a launch to the asylum. They discover that one of the patients is a mad scientist, Nicholas Borge, who invented the Flying Circles. De Roski has hypnotized patients to believe they will pilot the Circles to Paradise, and then get them to crash into Blackhawk Island. Blackhawk and Andre are captured and De Roski puts Blackhawk in one of the Circles. However, Blackhawk managed to turn his belt radio on, so the other Blackhawks are waiting and force the Circle down into the ocean. They rescue Blackhawk, then reach the asylum before the Doctor can do the same to Andre. As they attack, Borge strangles De Roski. The Blackhawks destroy the remaining Flying Circles.
