These are the voyages of the Hunter I, it's ongoing mission...
...to fill four pages per issue of Gold Key's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
Starting with this story in VttBotS #6 (1966), the Hunter I crew had adventures set in the near-future of the late 1990s-early 2000s, much like then-current films like Green Slime, Wild Wild Planet, and Battle in Outer Space.
With only four pages per issue, there was little character development (or even names) for the crew, but lots of action!
The entire never-reprinted series was written by Dick Wood, and this first tale was illustrated by the Alberto Giolitti Studio.
If that name is familiar, Alberto Giolitti (and his studio) handled the art for the first few years of Gold Key's Star Trek comic from #3 to #39, as well as numerous other movie/tv tie-ins.
