The True, Thrilling Art of Diving

Operation 'Rescue' - True Thrilling Tales of Human Endeavour was a weekly feature in Valiant comic during 1966 and 1967.

The following page from a December '66 edition features an incident mentioned on a couple of covers featured in an earlier Art of Diving.  The shark involved was an Oceanic Whitetip but the artist here has just drawn a generic, comic-book shark! (Click for larger image.)

In November 1950, Life magazine published a feature on Cousteau and printed some of the pictures taken by him during the incident. You can see them here (pages 124 & 125).
