Amazing Adult Fantasy #11

Amazing Adult Fantasy #11, April 1962

I dunno, there’s something about this cover that just makes me laugh. A dorky-looking alien alongside a callout that promises to “respect your intelligence”… It’s asking for trouble really, isn’t it? And you have to love publisher Martin Goodman revisiting his dubious pulp roots with a title like Amazing Adult Fantasy. If you picked up a mag with that title today, you’d not be expecting comics I’ll bet!
