Synopsis for "The Arena of Sudden Death"
Continued from Korak Son of Tarzan #46.
They're placed in a chain gang, where they meet fellow captives, Dian the Beautiful, Ghak and Hooja the sly one. Dian informs them that they are heading to the home of the hideous Mahars.
During their journey, Hooja the sly one makes a romantic gesture towards Dian, but she wants nothing to do with him. He doesn't take heed of her rejections, and continues until David steps in and punches him out. Everyone stops and stares waiting for some sign from David. Unaware of what to do next, David does nothing. This causes Dian to walk away from him in shame.
Before he can apologize to her, the Gorilla-Men gather the shackled band of slaves together and take them inside a tunnel. Suddenly, the Gorilla-Men are angered and go into a violent rage. It seems Hooja the sly one has escaped and he has taken Dian the Beautiful.

Synopsis for "Trial of Fear"
Continued from Tarzan #209.
John Carter and Dejah Thoris are prisoners of the Tharks. As they await for their trial, an intruder attacks them in their chambers with a dagger. John quickly kills him. Tars Tarkas enters the prisoner's chambers and escorts the two to his chieftain. The Chief orders John to fight off several warriors, which he does with ease. By killing the warriors, he is promoted to a "Chieftain" himself, but with a firm warning that if he abuses his welcome, a painful death will follow.
Back in their quarters, a female Thark confides to John and the princess, that unbeknown to anyone else, she is the daughter of Tars Tarkas. The three make plans to escape, as a hidden female Thark overhears them. She runs off to tell her chieftain, who upon hearing the news, vows to kill John Carter.
