Captain Venture Infopages, Pinups

Captain Venture and the Land Beneath The Sea was published for 2 issues in 1968 and 1969. Issue 1  was an abridged reprinting of the back up feature from SPACE FAMILY ROBINSON, written by Del Connell and drawn by Dan Spiegle.The other issue was a continuation of the story by Gaylord DuBois and Spiegle.
Both issues sported painted covers by George Wilson, and both had back page pinups, a rarity not found in many GKs of those years.
Each issue also had "infopages" , although they might have been reprints.
