- Weird Wonder Tales is one of several reprint-based title launched by Marvel in the 1970s. Such titles proved to be popular and cheap, as Marvel did not pay artists and writers for reprinted material until the 1980s. The goal of the publication was initially to revisit the best science fiction stories Marvel had published during the 1940s and 1950s. After issue 6, however, the title turned more towards horror. Beginning with issue 19, Weird Wonder Tales also began to reprint the first tales of Doctor Droom from Amazing Adventures, this time re-introducing him as "Doctor Druid".
- Most of the issues of Weird Wonder Tales lack any kind of reprint credits, and credits for the completely re-done cover art are also generally absent.
