Adventure Comics - 1978

A nifty ad, courtesy Jim Aparo, who we didn't see draw Wonder Woman, the Flash, or Green Lantern much--a nice bonus.

Though Deadman's yellow glove bugs the heck out of me.

Sgt. Bilko - 1956

This swell ad sent to me by none other than Robby Reed of Dial B For Blog. Thanks Robby!

"The most riotously funny comics magazine in publishing history?" I think Mad magazine might have something to say about that...

Hot Wheels - 1970

Since this series featured stories and covers by Alex Toth--Alex Toth--isn't it about time for a trade paperback collection?

Showcase: Dr. Fate and Hourman - 1965

Courtesy Master Designer Ira Schnapp, an ad with a lot of text crammed into a small space, yet it reads perfectly and the design and color are flawless.

The Metal Men - 1963

Am I crazy, or would a Pixar-animated Metal Men movie be totally awesome?

This is an adorable ad, btw.

Binky's Buddies / Scooter - 1970

I found this ad in an old issue of The Phantom Stranger. I wonder--was there any crossover audience between these books and PS?

Oh, and I guess one could suggest the Binky cover has some sort of sexual subtext. But as Sigmund Freud once said: "A water hose joke is sometimes just a water hose joke."

Astonishing Tales - 1970

Bonus Post!

This as was sent to me by Robby Reed of
Dial "B" For Blog. And even though this has always been a DC Comics Ad Blog, the ad is certainly cool enough to post, plus I just appreciate Robby taking the time to send it to me.

Also, as you can see, I decided to spiff up the blog a little--new header, a new poll, etc. Hope you all like it!

Adventure Comics - 1980
