Forbidden Worlds was a fantasy comic from the
Comics Group, which won the 1964
Award for Best Regularly Published Fantasy Comic.
Forbidden Worlds, a 52 page comic with the initial subtitle
"Exploring the supernatural!", debuted in October 1951. The comic
was replaced by
Heroes from February until October 1955, when it
reappeared with #35 and the altered subtitle "Stories of strange
adventure". #101 saw a price raise from 10 cents to 12 cents. From
#108 on, it became sporadically twomonthly instead of strictly
monthly. #114 and #116 were special issues called
Forbidden Worlds presents Herbie, featuring Herbie
Popnecker, who was created in
Forbidden Worlds #73 (December 1958). #125 to #138 all
featured Magicman on the cover. The final issue was #145
(August 1967), when the company stopped producing newsstand comic
Most of the contents of
Forbidden Worlds,from 1957 to 1967, including
Herbie, was written by Richard E. Hughes under a
plethora of pseudonyms. Artists which contributed include Pete
Magicman an Ogden Whitney
Herbie. Other occasional contributors include Hy Eisman,
John Buscema, Paul Reinman and Chic Stone.
American Comics Group (ACG) was a small publisher during the
Golden and Silver Age of comic books
published several well-remembered characters and titles. The
company existed from 1943 to 1967.
In 1943, they started to publish their own work, by 1948 under
the name of American Comics Group. Their titles were typical of the
times, including horror, crime, mystery, funny animals, and the
like. Almost all stories after 1957, were written by editor Richard
E. Hughes under a variety of pseudonyms. Their big claim to fame
was when they created the character of
Worlds title (in issue #73, Dec. 1958). He would later
get his own title and be turned into a "super hero" called the "Fat
Fury". ACG would create other super-heroes in 1965 like
Magicman starting in
Forbidden Worlds #125, Nemesis in
Adventures into the Unknown (starting with #154) and John
Force, Magic Agent in his own title in 1962, then later in
Unknown Worlds (#35, 36, 48, 50, 52, 56) with a few stories
Forbidden Worlds (#124, 145) and
Adventures into the Unknown (#153, 157).
A distinctive trait of the company's horror comics (and of their
supernatural stories, such as Magicman ) was that all ghosts were
invariably colored light green.
