Image for Science Fiction Comics And Books

The origins of science fiction comics can be traced back to the superheroes who launched the whole industry. One in particular, Superman, holds all the key ingredients that would later spawn the whole genre.

Amongst the major titles here are two long runners Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds and Planet Comics. Rod Hathaway, AKA Space Detective was not so fortunate, but is well worth a browse.

It is not all serious stuff. For a bit of fun we have Fatman the Human Flying Saucer, Jetta and the rocket travelling rodent Space Mouse.

This section also has examples of spin-offs from early radio and TV shows with Tom Corbett Space Cadet, Space Patrol and Captain Video.

Strange titles that are must read include Space Western. As the title suggests it is an attempt at cross-genre between sci-fi and western. Even more bizzare is Lars of Mars, a martian who crashes to earth and finds a film role playing a martian! Sadly, he only lasted two issues.

We have 117 titles and 2,654 issues in our 'Science Fiction Category' for you to enjoy.
