Issue(s): Sub-Mariner #16
Since all but one of the Atlantean crew (the survivor's name is Thakos) was destroyed approaching the area...
...Namor investigates personally, fights Tiger Shark for a bit...
...and then allows Tiger Shark to lead the ghosts out of the sargasso, where they suddenly age to their natural chronological age, which kills all of them except (sliding timescale problem alert!) some German sailors who become very old but not old enough to die.
The Germans also have a torpedo that contains a virus that they intended to deploy against the United States, but Dr. Walter Newell is on the scene.
Newell seemingly dies stopping the torpedo.
Vashti and Namor seemed to be aware of the sargasso area...
...and had some agreement with the ghosts that they shouldn't be bothering anyone. Not all of the ghosts try to leave with Tiger Shark.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP places Hulk #118, which features Namor and several other Atlanteans, after this issue.
Continuity Insert? N

Gee, it's nice of Thakos to (inadvertently) find Tiger Shark, considering that Namor couldn't be arsed to look for him, huh?

The panel above has the German submariners say they have aged fifty years. So they are not Nazis, but from the First World War.

Thanks Bernard. Maybe i was subconsciously making some sliding timescale adjustments. ;-)

The story's title looks like a take on Edgar Rice Burroughs' "The Land That Time Forgot" and "The People That Time Forgot".
