Out of this World (Charlton)

    (Charlton, 1956-1959)
™ and ©1959 Charlton Publications, Inc.

The period immediately following the imposition of the Comics Code and the collapse of quality-conscious publishers like EC was the heyday of pulp science-fiction comics. Charlton’s Out of this World was not conspicuously worse than its competition from ACG, DC, and Atlas. Often featuring the imaginative artwork of Steve Ditko or the strong storytelling style of Paul Reinman, Out of this World offered tales of space adventures in the style of science-fiction writers such as Jack Williamson and Edmund Hamilton. Charlton generally favored the out-and-out action tale to the snap-endings, monsters, or hard-science approaches of its competitors, and appeared to be after younger or less discriminating readers.
