Captain's Library ADVENTURES IN PARADISE "Circle of Fire" Part 2

...a scholar obsessed with South Seas legends of a "King Shark" hires Adam Troy and his schooner, Tiki to travel to the island where the legend originated.
Arriving at the isle, the travelers meet the aged leader of the natives, who relates the tale...
Better take a break before we're eaten!
This never-reprinted tale from Dell's Four Color #1301 (1962), illustrated by Jack Sparling, was the only comic story about the series ever produced.
Considering the extreme verbosity of the script, I wonder if this was a script for a TV episode that was simply too expensive to produce, so the producers turned it over to the comic publishers and recommended it be adapted into graphic form.
It references backstory about the ongoing characters (shark-related incidents in their pasts) that licensed material like comics and paperback novels couldn't create independently, lest they contradict possible future stories on the show itself!
