Issue(s): Sub-Mariner #58
Well it turns out that there is one survivor. A female named Tamara.
She arrives in Atlantis with thoughts of revenge. She's surprised to learn how sincerely sorry everyone is about the terrible mistake they made, but she decides to go forward with her revenge plan anyway, utilizing a creature called a Haab that seems to be a sub-species of her people that she can control.
Namor stops her, but decides to forgive her and she's invited to live with the Atlanteans.
Tamara will hang around in the background for about five years before being completely forgotten until the 90s when she's briefly brought back in the later issues of the Namor series.
Everett's finished art over Kweskin's pencils - an arrangement due to deadline problems - is actually pretty good. Not Marvel House style at all, but the fact that it's distinctive is a point in its favor.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: On page two of this issue, Namor says it's been "weeks spent swimming aimlessly" since he was last in Atlantis. That creates a good gap to place Namor's Defenders appearances from Marvel Feature #2 to Defenders #6.

The title is a reference to the Paul McCartney song "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey".
Sam Kweskin did a lot of stories for Marvel/Atlas in the 1950s, but disappeared afterwards. He didn't stay at Marvel long this time either.
