Beware the Creeper #3

Beware the Creeper #3 (On Sale: July 23, 1968) has a nice Steve Ditko cover.

(The Isle of Fear) is by Denny O'Neil and Steve Ditko. Jack Ryder parachutes onto a recently discovered island to find Vera Sweet who has gone missing. Ryder discovers that the natives are being oppressed by a man calling himself the Supreme One. As the Creeper, he prevents one of the peasants from being executed. He then discovers that one of the Supreme One's men is Wingy Ames, a recently escaped convict.

Ryder disguises himself as one of the crooks. He finds that the island is being used by crooks as a hideout. They also have Vera held captive. Ryder is exposed and tied up with Vera in a cave.
