Air -Sub DX

Here is an obscure (to me anyway) comic about a craft that can fly and travel underwater.  The setting seems very Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon-ish, an apparent future version of Earth, but one in which such a craft is apparently still more advanced than other vehicles.  Posted on Four Color Shadows, this Air-Sub DX story comes from 1939.
