Who was Captain Future? He was Curtis Newton, who was born on the moon and who, after the murder of his parents by intergalactic spies, was raised and trained by a scientist and two robots. Captain Future kept the solar system safe from crime and other extraterrestrial threats. His adventures took place in the distant future year of … 1990. (At the time his stories were published, that was the future!) Captain Future headlined his own magazine from 1940 to 1951, with additional stories appearing in publications like Startling Stories and Amazing Stories.
Below are a few covers from Captain Future’s adventures. The majority of these were done by Earle Bergey, though Rudolph Belarski and Jerome Rozen did some work on the series as well.
