Space Adventures

    (Charlton, 1952-1956, 1958-1964, 1967-1969, 1978-1979)
™ and ©1962 Charlton Publications, Inc.
Series becomes War at Sea #22, returns from Nyoka Jungle Girl #22 at issue #23

Supersophisticated androids that can pass for human? Robots that turn on their creators to take control of their world? Strange alien armies secretly infiltrating the earth? Men rocketing through the galaxy as easily as taking an average Sunday drive in the country? Come on, that stuff is just a bunch of science fiction, right?

You bet it is! Published every two months, Charlton Comics presented a new collection of short stories about mankind’s long-dreamed-of exploration of the rest of the solar system…and beyond!

This series is notable for its many stories by Steve Ditko (creator of The Amazing Spider-Man), and for the first appearance of Captain Atom.
