Adventures on Other Worlds

Adventures on Other Worlds refers to a magazine and then later a series.

Adventures on Other Worlds was published from September 1978 to November 1979.  It was independently published by Robert E. Wronski, Jr. (which is me.)

The magazine was a sci-fi anthology, with one recurring character, Krazy-El.  Krazy-El was an alien from the planet Kookoorongba who was sent to Earth to observe and report.  He had to try to pretend to be human and had trouble fitting in with Earth culture.

Though the title was cancelled, Krazy-El later appeared as a major part of Super-Bob's storyline in Super Comics, and is now Krazel, aka Space Hero.

In 1981 - 1982, one of the features of Super Comics (the comic anthology) was "Adventures on Other Worlds".  This time, it was about three teenagers who are abducted by alien women from an amazon world called Booer.  The teens escape and then for a year travel to different planets as they try to get home.  Booer and the other planets visited in this series would eventually all resurface in other Super Comics series.  And the trio of teens would themselves return in the recent Crisis.

It should be noted that Adventures on Other Worlds was the original series title for DC's Adam Strange as well, but there is no connection.
