Notes:
Newspaper veterins Jack Bellew, George Warnecke and Clive Turnbull established Atlas Publications in 1948 with the colour Captain Atom comic by Australians Arthur Mather and Bellew [as John Welles]. Atlas soon abandoned colour and expanded into black and white reprints of popular newspaper strips, alongside a few Australian original comics. During the 1950s, Atlas introduced reprinted material from UK company Foldes Press (Super Thriller Comics) and US companies including ACG, Dell, Magazine Enterprises, Youthful, Prize/Feature and Orbit. Atlas also produced books and magazines. Some of its comics were later re-issued with new covers by Page Publications from the mid-1960s. Atlas Publications had no relationship with the US or UK companies using the Atlas name.
