Livingstone, Captain. Captain Livingstone was created by John Martin Leahy and appeared in “The Living Death” (Science and Invention, Oct. 1924-June 1925).

Captain Livingstone is an explorer who ventures into Antarctica. He follows a series of caves into the middle of the continent and discovers a land heated by volcanoes and various monsters, and a beautiful woman, frozen in the ice. He returns to civilization to tell his friends about it, and one of them, Darwin Frontenac, leads a mission which returns to Antarctica to investigate. They revive the woman and survive the attacks of tentacled plants and cannibalistic bear-like humanoids. The woman, Zandara, is beautiful and intelligent and the survivor of a Lost Race, and she accompanies Frontenac back home.
