Midnight Mystery

 MID6   (ACG, 1961)

and 1961 ACG

Astounding supernatural stories! Amazing Science Fiction! Strange Secrets! This and more is promised by Midnight Mystery, a science fiction-fantasy title from American Comics Group (ACG) from the early 1960s. The stories are standard post-Code science fiction, strongly influenced by the pulps of the 1940s and DCs successful series, Strange Adventures and Mystery in Space. Typical themes include earth after disaster (atomic bomb, Ice Age, etc.), modern man trapped in forgotten era of history, encounters with misunderstood aliens, battles with monsters, and unexplained phenomena. ACGs treatment of these stories was neither as rigorously hard SF as DC nor as over-the-top as Atlas/Marvel, nor, for that matter, as consistently mediocre as Charlton. Indeed, ACG previously mined this vein successfully with titles like Adventures into the Unknown. However, Midnight Mystery failed to take off and fizzled after only seven issues.
