Harvey released the sci-fi anthology series Alarming Adventures between October 1962 and February 1963. It ran for only three issues.
Edited by Joe Simon and featuring art by such stalwarts as Reed Crandall, Al Williamson, Angelo Torres, and George Tuska, as well as writing by a young Archie Goodwin, one would expect such a title full of derring-do comics action to succeed. However, although nicely done, its release was poorly timed. Despite the interest in the Space Race during that period, science fiction (and other types of) anthologies were simply dead in the water by that point. Simon may have been expecting the sort of reception received by EC's then-defunct titles (especially with Crandall and Williamson on board), but it was never meant to be.
