Introduction to Vol.1, no1, July 1950:

'Out of This World Adventures is designed to bring the best in imaginative entertainment to the large public who thrive on stories of future adventure, of excitement among the stars, and of the thrills that come with ever-advancing frontiers of science ... [it] is not just "another magazine" but is an innovation in the realm of science fiction. It combines the modern technologies of the full-color pictorial story with the best of the established fiction-magazine presentation to achieve a new effect in fantasy. In this initial issue, we have brought you an assortment of the better writers. We tend to suggest the celestial frontiers rather than the mundane background, in the feeling that space flight will prove to be the most exciting stimulant to adventure and progress yet to come - and we think that the age of space flight is rapidly dawning.'

The magazine includes novelettes, short stories, and comics.

Published early A. Bertram Chandler short stories (prior to his arrival in Australia).
