European publicationsEdit

U.S. publicationsEdit

In 1950 the U.S. comics industry came to a turning point. The Golden Age of Comic Books was ending, and the rise of crime comics, romance comics, western comic, horror comics, and science fiction comics signaled the start of the new decade. In the movies, Destination Moon, the first color science fiction film, and the first big budget science fiction film since Things to Come in 1936. DC Comics was quick to pick up on the renewed interest of the public in science fiction, and a still from Destination Moon was the cover of the new science fiction comic book Strange Adventures, soon joined by a companion book Mystery in Space. EC Comics were at the height of their all-too-brief trajectory, with science fiction comics Weird Science and Weird Fantasy.

Dell Comics was publishing a large number of western comics, dedicated to celebrities such as Roy Rogers and Gene Autry.

The comic strip reprint comics, which had started the comic book phenomenon, were disappearing. Ace Comics, Magic Comics, and King Comics ended their long runs. Attempts to bring out single character comic strip reprints, such as Flash Gordon, Steve Canyon, and Terry and the Pirates folded after short runs.

Also, Charles Schulz' Peanuts appeared for the first time on 2 October 1950 in seven US newspapers.
