Synopsis for "Island of Lost Heads"
Korak rescues several fleeing men who are being chased by horsemen in the desert. They all dive into the sea and swim towards Korak's raft. Now safe from their pursuers, suddenly a sea serpent tosses everyone overboard. After battling the creature, and succeeding, Korak introduces himself as "Son of Tarzan."
The sea breeze carries them to an island inhabiting only beautiful women with food and drink. The men Korak rescued begin to show their true selves, being thieves who have escaped prison, and want to steal "treasures" from the island.
The Queen hears of this and transforms the men into lowly beasts (pigs and donkeys). She then brings Korak a silken leash, as he will be her "royal pet." After seducing Korak, the Queen's brother enters threatening her to hand over the island's treasures. Though Korak has been tethered to the Queen as her plaything, he defends her by striking the brother down. The brother surrenders, and the Queen rewards Korak his freedom.

During one of his jogging runs, Carson spies upon some thieves among the shrubbery. He soon realizes that the thieves mean to harm a beautiful woman in the garden.

Though out numbered five-to-one, Carson battles them, but then retreats when he notices several Venusian warriors coming after the intruders too.
Days later, Carson confesses to his guardian, Danus, about the beautiful woman in the garden. Danus informs him that she is not to be seen or lusted after, and the two quarrel over the matter.
