The story:
An oil geologist and a female explorer are flying to a remote valley in the jungle in which the former has previously seen an impossible phenomenon: a fully-grown lion caught in a massive spider's web.

On hand to save the couple's pilot from a gruesome death, the Phantom and Devil enter the mysterious valley and its peculiar overgrowth in a bid to find the two missing adventurers, but they are not careful enough. Caught in the sticky webs with only skeletons of jungle animals surrounding them, all they can do is wait...

Watch out for:

  • Mysterious and dense yellow foliage
  • A webbed village housing inhabitants with sharp teeth
  • The all-powerful skeleton idol Oomagh
