All these of these genuine "Coming Super-Attractions" ads were sent to me by Robby Reed of Dial "B" For Blog. Thanks Robby!

And now its time to call it a day at Coming Super-Attractions! I deeply appreciate everyone who stopped by here and checked out what I was doing, and those who left comments.

While this blog was always the least popular of all my comic blogging efforts, there was a core audience who stopped by every day, and it was for that audience--you--that I kept it going for as long as I did.

If/when CSA returns, I think I'll be adding some of the other bizarre and/or fun material you'd find in between the story pages, like Cap's Hobby Hints, Reader Surveys, Public Service Annoucements, and the like. And since most of my current blogs are "limited run" blogs, I do think I'll be returning to CSA at some point down the line.

Until then, if you don't already, you should check out Allan Harvey's blog Gorilla Daze--he regularly posts DC house ads, many even more obscure than the ones I got to.

Thanks everyone, and keep watching the newsstands!

DC has reinvented Adventure Comics, House of Mystery, and House of Secrets...where's My Greatest Adventure?!?

Why do I get the feeling that when they made this ad, DC didn't know whether Atlas was getting his own title or just a First Issue Special?

This cool ad was sent to me by Robby Reed of Dial "B" For Blog. Too bad Sgt. Rock never crossed over...
