Out of This World Adventures was a pulp magazine which published two issues, in July and December 1950. It was published by Avon Books, and included a section of comics in the middle of the magazine. Avon issued three pulp titles that year in the same format: the other two were Sparkling Love Stories and Pioneer Western, both of which lasted only a single issue. Out of This World was edited by Donald A. Wollheim, and included fiction by A.E. van Vogt, Lester del Rey, William Tenn, Mack Reynolds, Ray Cummings and A. Bertram Chandler.[1]
