Adventures in Jet Power - 1950

General Electric "Adventure Series" Comic Books

General Electric "Adventure Series" Comic Books - Airplanes and RocketsGeneral Electric (GE) produced a series of informational technical publications in comic book format back in the 1950s. One was entitled "Adventures in Jet Power," released in 1950, 1955, and 1960. GE has been a major producer of jet engines for commercial and military aircraft for many decades. After doing an extensive search for full versions of the comics, I finally found this 1950 issue posted on The Fabulous Fifties website. Thumbnail versions of each page are given below, with hyperlinks to the full-size original scans. I didn't want to copy the publisher's work, so instead I went to the Archive.org website and had The Wayback Machine grab copies of each page for posterity sake, in case The Fabulous Fifties website ever goes away. None had been previously archived. Other of the Adventure Series included "Adventures in Electricity," "Adventures into the Past," Adventures Inside the Atom," and "Adventures in Electronics." Here is a good list of all of the GE Adventure Series comics. Many of these comic books can be bought on eBay, and they are not cheap!
