The Outer Limits: An Illustrated Review

Total Issues: 2

The Outer Limits was a television program that ran from September 16, 1963 to January 16, 1965. It offered 48 first run episodes (one episode ran for two weeks). The stories were both science fiction and horror. Each show featured a monster and some surprisingly good writing. This "magazine" was an affectionate backward glance at the show. The two issues contain a synopsis of the stories as well as commentaries on each, photos and interviews. There were supposed to be two more issues.
