Fourth Voyage Of Sinbad

One of the most interesting books I have ever read was One Thousand and One Nights, a/k/a Arabian Nights.  It is the overall story that contains many stories within stories, including those of "Aladdin's Wonderful Lamp," "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," and the "Seven Voyages of Sinbad."  To the best of my memory, this 1944 comic, posted on Four Color Shadows, is a fairly true telling of the Fourth Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor.
