Forbidden Worlds was first published by the American Comics Group, in 1951. The initial subtitle was 'Exploring The Supernatural!' which was later changed to 'Stories Of Strange Adventure'.
It ran for a total of 145 issues, until its demise in August 1967, when American Comics Group ceased publishing newsstand comic books.
For the last ten years of its existence most of the content was written by one man, Richard E. Hughes, who used a range of aliases to disguise the fact.
Artists who worked on the title over the years included, Pete Costanza who drew Magicman, Ogden Whitney who drew Herbie, Chic Stone, Hy Eisman, John Buscema and Paul Reinman.
American Comics Group
American Comics Group (ACG) was a New York City-based comic book publisher which operated during the Golden and Silver Age of comic books. ACG published one of the first horror comics titles, Adventures into the Unknown. Another of ACG's claims to fame was the character of Herbie Popnecker, who starred for a time in Forbidden Worlds. Herbie would later get his own title and be turned into a "superhero" called "The Fat Fury".
Founded by Benjamin W. Sangor (1889-c. 1953), ACG was owned or co-owned by Fred Iger from 1948 to 1967. Iger also owned part of DC Comics. Iger's father-in-law, Harry Donenfeld, head of National Periodical Publications (later known as DC Comics), was also a co-owner in the early 1960s (though Donenfeld was severely incapacitated and out of the business after an accident in 1962). ACG was distributed by Independent News Company, which also distributed (and was part of the same company as) DC.
