Amazing Mystery Funnies #3
There's good attention to detail on the rooms here, from the stonework on the floor to the skull and bottles in the secret room, but what really interests me is why there are sarcophagi in a chemist's lab...
The "self-propelled bomb" sounds like a good idea -- a miniature plane that drops a bomb and then returns to the sender. What's weird is the short range here...would you really want to propel a bomb from just 10' away...?
Archaeology can be a dangerous hobby, even in the 20th century. There's crumbling ruins that could result in falling damage, relics that might go off and hurt someone while being examined, and -- as the next page reveals (which I'm neglecting to share), living threats from the 20th century that are held in suspended animation until encountered.
