In September 1938, Jumbo Comics became the first comic book title Fiction House produced. Thurman T. Scott, head of the Pulp producing company, was interested in getting into comic books when he was approached by businessman Jerry Iger and future comics legend Will Eisner to do just that. For its first 9 issues, Jumbo was an oversized anthology featuring a number of different strips, most notably the first appearance of Sheena in #1(1-8 were B&W). With the 10th issue, the title went regular size, increasing to 68 pages but keeping the anthology format. During its 167 issue run, fans of the title would see hundreds of Sheena adventures as well as a host of additional strips. However, there's no doubt that the real star of Jumbo Comics was Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.

Featured art by such prominent artists as Will Eisner and Lou Fine.

Debuting in January of 1940, Planet Comics was a comic book spin-off of Planet Stories, a pulp science fiction magazine. The focus of both Planet Comics and Planet Stories was space opera: powerful young men, beautiful and scantily clad young women, ray guns, space ships, and plenty of technobabble.

Planet Comics started off as a monthly book then, perhaps because of paper rationing during World War 2 dropped down to a bimonthly title. Towards the end of the 1940s, Planet Comics was reduced again, this time to a quarterly title. Unfortunately, things didn't improve from there. For three years, 1950, 1951, and 1952, Planet Comics was released annually. After 1952, the title returned to a quarterly release schedule but the last nail was already in the coffin. The final issue of Planet Comics was number 72, released in the fall of 1952.

Rangers Comics was the last of Fiction House's much-advertised "Big Six of the Comics." Rangers was never monthly and was the first of the "Big Six" to be cancelled, with #69. The title was filled with war-themed stories through 1945, then became an intriguing anthology title. The title came full-circle when the last four issues featured a Korean War version of Commando Rangers.

Rangers #1–5 covers featured a kid costume hero group, the Rangers of Freedom, although the strip became a Marine hero story with #5 (the cover to #5 was a mistaken carryover of the kid group). One of the first attempts at a horror theme, Werewolf Hunter, began in #8. A quasi-costume hero, Commando Ranger, appeared in #13–20.

Rangers is best known for featuring one of the finest of the Western heroines—Firehair, Queen of the Sagebrush Frontier. She debuted in #21 (1945) and ran through #65 (1952) while serving as the cover feature for #40–65 with many of the best Fiction House covers of the 1948–52 period. A good horror strip, The Secret Files of Dr. Drew, ran in #47–60, with art by Jerry Grandenetti. His work in #47–56 strongly shows the influence of Will Eisner and has long been a favorite with collectors.

Like Planet, the post-war issues of Rangers often offer attractive artists' work, including work by John Celardo, Matt Baker, Bob Lubbers, Ruben Moreira and Maurice Whitman. Again though, it's important to leaf through each issue. Fiction House comics tended to be produced in an assembly line manner and the result was anything but consistent.

Tracking-
Numbering continues from Rangers of Freedom Comics (Fiction House, 1941 series); numbering continues in Rangers (Fiction House, 1952 series).

Sheena, Queen of the Jungle is a jungle-dwelling comic book character, published originally by Fiction House. Lithe, athletic, and clad in skimpy leopard skin, and barefoot, she possessed the ability to communicate with the wild animals she had grown up with since being orphaned in the jungle.

She was the first female comic-book character with her own title, with her Spring 1942 premiere beating Wonder Woman #1 (Summer 1942) by three months.
