Kuda, Barry. Barry Kuda [sic] and his best friend Algie are sailing in the south Pacific when their ship is sunk by a typhoon. They are sucked to the ocean floor, but breathe underwater because of a “strange coral” which gives off “oxide.” Barry and Algie save the life of “Merma, Queen of the sunken city usurped by my minister, Belzan. He ordered those men to kill me!” Belzan and his men are fishmen, but Merma is a lovely brunette. Barry and Algie help restore Merma to the throne and exile Belzan, and stay underwater. Barry and Merma become lovers. Later, Barry, Algie and Merma depose the tyrant of Octo Land, reclaim Merma’s land from the Crag Men, and fight the volcanic hordes of Pyron and Dr. Dee. Barry and Algie have no superpowers, but are very strong and athletic.
