Planet Comics January 1940 - Winter 1953-54. 73 issues total.

Planet Comics is probably the most collectable of Fiction House's titles. This is primarily due to the fantastic art on many of the covers, but the science fiction theme - and this was reportedly the first regular comic book title devoted to the genre - almost certainly didn't hurt.

The book is also known for its so-called Good Girl Art, featuring strong, beautiful heroines in dramatic poses and situations.

The Space Ranger; Auro, Lord of Jupiter; Gale Allen; and The Lost World were among the most popular strips/characters of the series.

Over its run the title employed some top-notch creators such as Will Eisner, Matt Baker, and Murphy Anderson.
