About Planet Comics
A property of Fiction House, the original atomic age, a science fiction adventure book was published in November 1947, with pencils and inks by Joe Doolin. It was titled ‘Mad Mute X-Adapts’ referring to a story inside, taking place in The Lost World. Planet Comics volume one ran from 1940 to 1953, featuring an adventurous mix of science fiction stories taking place in other worlds, and across time and space.
It inspired the imaginations of readers seeking to escape reality in favor of chasing opportunities to discover new worlds, battle horrible foes, and save damsels in distress. An early adopter of “good girl art,” Planet Comics’ covers often featured a beautiful woman with long bare legs being menaced by a frightful alien, monster, or villain. On occasion, artists would reverse the formula and have the beautiful woman in the role of hero, racing to the aid of a male captive.
