Accompanied from 1965 by Journey Into Mystery Annual (Marvel, 1966 series).

This series was launched as one of five SF/Horror anthologies launched in a six-month period (cover dates January 1952–June 1952), increasing Atlas’s SF line from seven to twelve books. Journey Into Mystery was cancelled at the collapse of Atlas’s distributor and the subsequent restructuring known as the “Atlas Implosion”, but was relaunched a year later along with the new series Tales of Suspense (Marvel, 1959 series), Tales to Astonish (Marvel, 1959 series) and Strange Worlds (Marvel, 1958 series) to expand and revamp Marvel’s SF line following Jack Kirby’s return to the company. It included Thor lead feature from issue #83 (August 1962). Contained only Thor and Asgard stories from issue #105 (June 1964). This series introduced Thor and the Warriors Three.

Scripts were generally not credited before the superhero days. However, it is well known that Stan Lee (sometimes assisted by Larry Lieber, or Lieber on his own) wrote the overwhelming majority of these stories from 1959 to 1963. Where there is no positive confirmation, credits may be listed as “Stan Lee ?; Larry Lieber ?”, or either person individually, or simply “?”, according to the indexer’s best information.

Journey into Mystery is an American comic book series initially published by Atlas Comics, then by its successor, Marvel Comics. Initially a horror comics anthology, it segued to giant-monster and science fiction stories in the late 1950s. Beginning with issue #83 (cover dated August 1962), it ran the superhero feature “The Mighty Thor”, created by writers Stan Lee and Larry Lieber and artist Jack Kirby, and inspired by the mythological Norse thunder god. The series, which was renamed for its superhero star with issue #126 (March 1966), has been revived three times: in the 1970s as a horror anthology, and in the 1990s and 2010s with characters from Marvel’s Thor mythos.

The first Journey into Mystery series was initially a horror-fantasy anthology published by Marvel Comics’ 1950s forerunner, Atlas Comics, with a first issue cover-dated June 1952. Artist Joe Kubert, who would later become one of the main war comics artists for DC Comics drew the story “The Hog” in Journey into Mystery #21 (January 1955). Issue #23 was the first to be approved by the Comics Code Authority, which led to restrictions on horror comics. The title was caught in the collapse of Atlas’ distributor, and publication was suspended for a year between issues #48 (Aug. 1957) and #49 (Nov. 1958). Xemnu the Living Hulk, a huge, furry alien monster first appeared in Journey Into Mystery #62 (November 1960) The character reappeared in issue #66 (March 1961). Since then the character has been a mainstay in the Marvel Universe, and was renamed Xemnu the Titan. Journey into Mystery #69 and the teen-humor title Patsy Walker #95 (both June 1961) are the first modern comic books labeled “Marvel
Comics”, with each showing an “MC” box on its cover.

    Hi, i discovered your blogs some months ago and it is really fantastic, many thanks for all the hard work you put in here !!! I’m 44 and started reading comics one year ago. I want to ready everything since golden age up to the current ones but i think i’ll be long dead before i can finish this project. I really like the classic scans, not the digital remastered , i hate the new colors. I’d like to find journey into mystery ( especially when Thor stories begin ) in normal scans but everywhere i look these are the digital scans without the secondary stories. Do you know where i can find these ?thanks again for all the pleasure you’re giving me !
