Summary (S149): As Ellta settles in at Dr. Zarkov’s Rocky Mountain retreat (see S-148 Death Ship), Flash continues his efforts to track down Skorpi undercover agents on Earth, unawares that an advance Skorpi detail is already preparing an underground spy base in the Arctic.

But starting their digging into the frozen continent, the Skorpi get a monumental surprise themselves as a giant Norseman is thawed from a deep sleep and creates havoc in his midst...

I'm love with this story since childhood. Don't know why. If anyone can complete this strip, would be very very thankful.

 
Indrajal version is available HERE

Summary (S150): As an obstinate Norseman sets off in search of the legendary Asgard (see S-149 Skorpi vs Baldur), Flash and Dale join Zarkov at a giant solar collector in space shortly before a Mongo ship in distress docks at the station.

Rescuing the desperate occupant, the trio learns that the orbiting city Mongo II is slowly dying as crucial energy supplies from a nearby moon are hijacked by an mercenary from Earth who has allied himself with no other than Ming the Merciless...
