From Beyond the Unknown was the title of an American science-fiction comic book series published by DC Comics from 1969 to 1973.

Publication history[edit]

From Beyond the Unknown was published as a bi-monthly series for 25 issues, from October–November 1969 to November–December 1973.[1] There was an extra month's gap in mid–1973, between issues #22 and #23,[2] and the series was cancelled at the end of that year.

From Beyond the Unknown was an anthology series, whose tagline promised to provide "Stories that Stagger the Imagination". The series reprinted stories from earlier DC Comics anthologies, including Strange Adventures and Mystery in Space. Covers featured such imaginative settings as an alien auctioneer preparing to sell the Earth, or an ape-man trying to conquer the world.

Cover dates on comics didn't match magazine dating norms, and by 1973 Marvel's cover dates made them appear newer than DC's, so DC decided to skip using May 1973 and go straight to June.
