*Miscellaneous 1940-1959: Is it a pulp? Is it a comic? Well, actually it’s both! In 1950, Avon experimented with a 32 page colour comic insert inside a traditional science fiction pulp magazine (so popular at the time). So here, in Out Of This World Adventures #2, you get what appears to be a pulp mag, with a gorgeously typical painted cover, and interior illustrated text stories by the likes of A. Bertram Chandler and others, plus 32 pages of colour comics, led by Wally Wood’s wonderful Flying Saucers and other horror/comedy shorts. The uniqueness of this item in publication history is assured due to there being only two issues produced in this format. A decent copy, with the squarebound spine almost intact but for a small split and the top and a tape repair at the bottom (about 6 cm). The beautiful cover image is unmarred.
