Spacemen

Spacemen, Inc./Warren Publishing Co.
Publisher: James Warren
Editor: Forrest J Ackerman
July 1961 - June 1964

Covering sci-fi movies from Metropolis to the sci-fi serials and the classic space movies of the 1950s, Spacemen (like Warren's Screen Thrills Illus.) took it's subject a bit more serious than the pun-filled Famous Monsters (much to the delight of it's editor). Each issue also include a piece of short (science) fiction. With the whole country space crazy (in the early 1960s), it's surprising that Spacemen didn't sell well enough to last longer than it's short eight issue run.
