SciFi Sunday: Knights fighting alien dragons, strip teases, and Robo Journalists


Today we’ve got TWO wonderful issues to examine! Both issued in the mid 60s (64 and 65) there is an obvious difference in style. Lots more ladies are present in these magazines than the ones from the 70s. Actually, the future part of the science fiction seems secondary in Worlds of If, with many of the illustrations involving knights and then Henlein’s novel illustrations that all look like ancient Rome. There are a few spaceships scattered in there though.

Worlds of Tomorrow has plenty of futuristic scifi,  with the robotic journalist but also includes plenty of thick rimmed glasses wearing guys with black suits and skinny ties. Oh, there are ladies of course, including the peculiar strip tease looking image.
