Synopsis for "The Coming of Namora!"
A gang of crooks in a submarine are busy looking for Namor's undersea home while the hero is away on a mission in Asia in order to rob it of its wealth. They find an underwater city ruled that is living peacefully under their ruler and his daughter Aquaria Nautica Neptunia. The crooks dive down to the city and gun down everyone, seemingly killing all the undersea dwellers and robbing them of their valuables and flee.
Later, the Sub-Mariner is swimming by and decides to stop by the kingdom and sees the massacre. He is surprised when he finds Aquaria alive, and agrees to assist her on avenging the death of her father and his people. Aquaria decides to take on the alias Namora since she is working with Namor. Describing some of the attackers, Namor recognizes one of them as Stoop Richards. They go to a west coast prison and learn that Stoop was released from prison 3 months earlier. Knowing that Stoop is a notorious gambler, Namor suggests that they check out the gambling ship known as the "Blue Rose". Along the way, Namor suggests that if they get split up they meet at an island called Silver Rock. As it turns out, Stoop and some of the gang are intending to rob the Blue Rose as well. They are caught in the middle of their heist by both Namor and Namora who make short work on the crooks and tie them up.
However, before they can get them to talk about the massacre of Namora's people, the leader of the gang and more men arrive. They chloroform Namora and take her prisoner and knock Namor out, leaving him behind. When Namor revives he learns what happened to Namora and goes out looking for her. Coming across Silver Rock, he comes up with a plan to get the crooks to come to him. He goes to a local radio station and convinces the announcer to report a false story about Namor being in a coma and talking about an island full of jewels that "sparkle like silver". At the hideout of the gang, they hear this report. Namora realizes that it is a coded message from Namor telling her to get the crooks to Silver Rock. When they threaten her to reveal the location of the "jewels" she plays along, leading them to Silver Rock where Namor ambushes them and easily subdues the killers of Namora's people.
With no place to go, Namora is brought to the home of Betty Dean, who agrees to take Namora in. Namor then tells Namora that they will have more adventures in the future and departs.

Synopsis for "Venus Come to Earth"
Venus tells the story about how she came to the planet Earth....
Having grown bored over her rule on the planet Venus, Venus decided that she wanted to know what it was like to live as an earthly woman on the planet Earth. She makes a wish and suddenly finds herself transported to New York City. Her sudden appearance and stunning beauty attracts an entire mob of people, including Whitney Hammond, publisher of Beauty Magazine. Hammond was fretting over how to keep his magazine in business when suddenly spotting Venus among the crowd. As a police officer begins hassling Venus about blocking traffic, Hammond acts quickly, claiming that the girl is one of his models for Beauty Magazine and the entire spectacle is a publicity stunt and that she will be appearing in the next month of Beauty Magazine.
Whitney then leads Venus into a taxi cab and asks her where she came from. Venus tries to explain that she is the goddess Venus and that she came from the planet of the same name, but Hammond does not believe her. When they arrive at the Beauty Magazine building, Whitney brings Venus to his office where she again tries to convince him that she comes from the planet, Venus. To try and prove this she tries to walk through the wall of his office but it doesn't work and Venus suddenly realizes that she does not have her powers while on Earth. Convincing her to be an exclusive model for Beauty Magazine, Whitney calls in his staff and introduces them to Venus. She meets Perry Palette the art direct, Clarence Snipe the editor, and Della Mason the secretary.
When Whitney explains that they are going to promote Venus as the "descendant" of the original Venus, Clarence scoffs the idea and resigns when Whitney gives him an ultimatum to follow his orders or quit. Stuck without an editor, Whitney mulls over who he will hire to fill the spot. Della vies for the position, but Whitney quickly decides to give Venus the job, much to Della's chagrin. With the decisions made, Whitney shows Venus her new office and then rushes out to get her some new clothes.
... Concluding her story, Venus thanks the stars for granting her wish and muses about how she finds Whitney Hammond handsome.
