Science Fiction Classics [1967]

Total Issues: 6+2+6+6+10+12=42

These issues were the starting point for the most complex sequence of Ultimate's reprint magazines, a sequence which underwent two title changes and spun off two additional titles. Since the exact sequence of issues and interrelationships of these titles seems little understood, this would seem an appropriate place to summarize them.

Following the sixth issue a bewildering sequence of title changes began. The seventh issue was titled SF Adventure Classics. This was followed by Strange Fantasy: #s 8, 9 and 10. After that SF Adventure Classics #8 was issued, which had the retroactive effect of splitting off the Strange Fantasy issues into their own sequence, which continued through #13.

SF Adventure Classics #8 was followed by Space Adventures #9, 10 and 11. A title change back to SF Adventure Classics appeared to take place with the next issue, #12. However, shortly afterward a Space Adventures #12 also appeared and continued the original sequence, eventually concluding with #14. Thus was the second sequence of SF Adventure Classics retroactively split off to form its own sequence, which continued for several more years.
