Remember when comics were good clean fun? It was every boy's (and a lot of girl's too!) every week adventure to get the latest comic adventures brought to you in those "dime magazine" rags.
We're on a mission to bring back those days into the new digital tablet frontier for today's youth and for those that want to recapture some of the day's of their youth as well.
In this app we bring you issue #1 of the Ziff-Davis series "Amazing Adventures" (Amazing Facts From Nature and Thrilling Science-Fiction Tales!)
The first series titled Amazing Adventures was a 1950s science fiction anthology produced by Ziff-Davis and featuring painted covers. It ran for six issues, beginning c. 1950. with the first two issues being undated. Subsequent issues were dated June, August, and November 1951, and Fall 1952. Its artists included Murphy Anderson, Bernard Krigstein, and Don Perlin, and at least one issue (#2) featured a cover painting by Alex Schomburg.
Amazing Adventures is the name of several anthology comic book series, all but one published by Marvel Comics. The earliest Marvel series of that name introduced the company's first superhero of the late-1950s to early-1960s period fans and historians call the Silver Age of Comic Books. That same series also included the first comic book to be labeled "Marvel Comics".
