The History of Warren Publishing
Warren Publishing ran from 1957 to 1983, it was founded by James Warren in Philadelphia PA. He later moved his company to New York in 1965. Warren specialized in Horror, Fantasy, and Science Fiction magazines. Warren published other genre magazines focusing on different subject matter such as teen romance or adult humor. There were two things that set Warren apart from other comics. First they were sold in a larger format than regular comics thus classifying them as magazines. Second, Warren exempted his publications from the now defect Comic Code Authority. This allowed the writers and artist to inject more mature content into the stories. This included some coarse language, violence, sexual situations and nudity. These two factors helped Warren reach an adult audience.

'UFO and Outer Space' Comic Book
When I was growing up in the 70's, I did read a variety of comic books. Everything from the super hero to TV and movie tie-ins, and anthology series. One anthology series stood out and was a favorite of mine: UFO Flying Saucers also known as UFO and Outer Space. The comic was about real life reports of UFO encounters from the files of Project Blue Book, the official U.S. Air Force investigation of UFOs, and reports from other sources. UFO Flying Saucers was published by Gold Key comics from about 1968 to 1978. The stories would come in different formats in the comic, a full story based on an incident, a two page spread on UFO origins, and comic panel on UFO hoaxes and frauds. It also came as computation book which contained comic stories of previous issues.
