    Captain Future/Out of this World Group Lot, Rockford pedigree (Better Publications, various dates). This group includes a VG/FN copy of Out of this World #1 from July 1950. In addition to the great cover of a gal being strangled by a Martian, this Avon pulp contains a 32-page color comic section with spectacular artwork by Joe Kubert. Avon was producing comics at the same time and published a small number of pulps, of which this was the first, with art and stories from their comics line. Three FN/VF issues of Captain Future (with nifty covers!) round out this lot: Fall 1942, Summer 1943, and Winter 1943. Edmond Hamilton, creator and writer for Captain Future, later went to work for DC comics writing memorable stories for their science fiction comics like Strange Adventures and Mystery in Space. All of these copies are from the Rockford collection of comics and pulps and have nice colors and creamy pages.
