Featuring early work by such greats as Gil Kane and Roy Thomas, Worlds Unknown had a brief, but enjoyable run from 1973 to 1974. In its pages, which included reprints from the early days of Astonishing Tales, we find aliens out to destroy the planet, modern-day men trapped in a world of dinosaurs, and other classic science-fiction tales.
