First Issue #1 - December 1982
Last #9 - January 1985
A science fiction anthology comic book edited by Bruce Jones and April Campbell. It was published bi-monthly by Pacific Comics from December 1982 to April 1984 (seven issues). After Pacific went bankrupt, two final issues were published by Eclipse. In May 1988, Eclipse issued a standalone, unnumbered edition of the title as part of its Graphic Album Series, featuring all new stories and art.
Nearly all of the stories in Alien Worlds were written by Jones, with only a few exceptions (notably Jan Strnad's "Stoney End" in Issue # 8 and Frank Brunner's "The Reading!" in Issue # 9). Jones had developed a skill for the short genre tale, often with a surprise ending, during his years with Warren Publishing while writing for their Creepy and Eerie titles. He was heavily influenced by the horror and science fiction movies of the 50's, adding graphic violence and sexuality to the mix, complete with copious female nudity; several issues sported a "Recommended For Mature Readers" warning on the cover. However, for the most part Alien Worlds avoided the more intensely gruesome subject matter of Jones' other Pacific comic, Twisted Tales, which was being published at the same time.
