Synopsis for "Lights of Doom"
John Carter rescues a beautiful princess from imprisonment inside a huge emerald. Afterward, she explains to him how she came to be trapped inside the jewel. Suddenly, huge pterodactyls attack them, but the two are saved (?) as a blinding light captures them and they are drawn upwards by some unseen power, towards an alien craft hovering above.
Once on board the spacecraft, they listen to an unseen narrator who informs John that he will become a Messiah for Barsoom. Not wanting to be the alien's "Judas Goat," John retaliates. He grabs hold of some controls which causes the craft to take a nosedive to Mar's surface. John and the princess emerge from the crash and notice an ominous shadow looming over them, "foretelling of circumstances that would rival the imagination of a madman!"
Though this story is to be continued, it is not, and is left unresolved (see notes).

Synopsis for "By Kamlot's Grave"
Carson's first hunt for "Tarel" (cobwebs) begins in the lush forest with his guardian's son — Kamlot. The two climb up a tree only to find a Targo (giant spider) ready to protect its web. The spider goes for Kamlot first, and Carson hacks away at it with his sword. With the spider dead, Carson climbs back up the tree to find his companion very still and not breathing. Furthermore, Carson realizes he is now lost in the vast Venusian forest.
While Carson creates a mossy grave for his friend, Kamlot awakes, as it seems he's not dead after all, but was briefly paralyzed from the spider's venom.
The two head home through the forest and are attacked by flying furies (Klangan). The bird-men lasso the two with wire nooses and carry them to the sea, where a docked ship awaits for them in the harbor.
Reprinted from Korak, Son of Tarzan #50.
