Since his passing last week, it seems only fitting to post one of the comic books that Russ Heath illustrated. DC's SEA DEVILS had appeared in SHOWCASE, and their was enough fan interest to take a chance on giving them their own series.

Co-created by Robert Kanigher, SEA DEVILS were a group of scuba-diving, underwater adventurers. What made them different from other DC characters of the day is that none of them had super powers. Their stories included all manner of monsters and mayhem, as seen in this, the first issue.
