ADVENTURES INTO THE UNKNOWN Volume 11

$59.99
Collects #58-64, 1954-55 Highly Recommended. Art by Harry Lazarus, Kenneth Landau, Edmund Good, Bob Forgione et al. If anything, the comic code resulted in even better stories in this ACG title. Richard Hughes began doing many more science fiction stories, and often nice long tales that could run 10-12 pages in length. Meanwhile, artists Harry Lazarus and Kenneth Landau, today almost forgotten, were delivering highly detailed, well-drawn stories with much in common with early Al Williamson/Roy Krenkel work! Also includes two very wild "3-D Effect" issues, in full color and requiring no glasses. Now among the most highly prized issues.

If anything, the comic code resulted in even better stories in this ACG title. Richard Hughes /strong> began doing many more science fiction stories, and often nice long tales that could run 10-12 pages in length. Meanwhile, artists Harry Lazarus and Kenneth Landau, today almost forgotten, were delivering highly detailed, well-drawn stories with much in common with early Al Williamson/Roy Krenkel work! Also includes two very wild "3-D Effect" issues, in full color and requiring no glasses. Now among the most highly prized issues.

I've chosen a great robot story as one of the scans, and that's also one of those cool 3-D Effect issues, plus it's by Lazarus. Landau delivers fine space adventures, including "The Tiny Space-Girl." And also here is John Rosenberger, often known as "John R." for short, who had a polished style not unlike the fine Kurt Schaffenberger, whose work on Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane was a highpoint of the Silver Age. Rosenberger was a fine draftsman, again showing the influence here of Al Williamson and Alex Raymond, including a fine, extra-long story, "Coward in Outer Space."

Ogden Whiteney provides excellent covers. And this includes text stories as well as the original letters pages, where you'll begin to find some surprising names offering story critiques.Very solid, readable stories that I personally list among my favorites from this era of comics. Richard Hughes was brilliant at coming up with new and different plots and here, I feel, was a far better writer and editor than Stan Lee was over at Atlas. Nothing against Stan, he had his heyday in the sixties, but back in this era, many of the Atlas stories were short little cliched pieces, and don't hold up. These do and are fun both for their art AND their content.

Meticulously compiled from the original source material and painstakingly digitally restored.
