All Star Adventure Comic # 12

It’s taken a few weeks, but this instalment wraps up the indexing to the first dozen issues of All Star Adventure Comic, which I began discussing towards the end of January.

There’s plenty of unidentified contents in these issues – and possibly some errors - so as always, if any one can identify any of the contents or cover artists, or if anyone has corrections to any of the credits, or would like to refer me to any sources which may provide more information, please send me an email.

All Star Adventure Comic #12, circa November 1961

(Cover artist/source unidentified)

This issue reprints three stories which originally appeared in Planet Comics #73, Winter 1953, Fiction House. I assume they were sourced from the facsimile reprint of Planet Comics #73 in Space Mysteries #9, 1958/1959, Super Comics, I. W. Publishing. These issues included two more stories not reprinted in All Star #12 – a Cerebex story which appeared in All Star #11, and “Strangers On Satellite C”, which may be reprinted in another K.G. Murray comic.
