Wonder Woman - 1980

A very nice ad, it made Wonder Woman look very exciting.

I still didn't buy the book. Sorry, Diana.

Detective Comics - 1992

A really nice, eye-catching ad--I never read Detective during this era, but this ad makes me want to read them now!

Heroes Against Hunger - 1986

An ok ad, a great cause--but I feel bad for any graphic designer who has to fit in that massive list of names.

Batman - 1968

Ok, not the DC Ad Department's finest hour...

Mister Miracle - 1977

Hard to beat the team of Englehart and Rogers...

Guns of the Dragon - 1998

Of the (egads!) four decades I've been buying comics, my least comics-driven decade was the 1990s, when a combo of other interests and (IMO) a fairly creatively-dry period in the industry led me to other pursuits and following comics as a whole very casually.

That must be the reason that I have absolutely no memory of this series, none at all.

It certainly looks like fun, and the ad is very spiffy! But before I saw this ad, if you had said the title, I would not have been able to tell you it was a DC book.

Claw The Unconquered - 1975

Um, I think something got screwed up at the printers...

Our Army At War - 1966

This ad's text seems a bit in conflict with the gruesome image, don't you think?

Justice Society of America - 1992

A really fun series, with outstanding art by the late Mike Parobeck. I wish this series had lasted a lot longer than it did.

Deadman - 1986

Hard--no, impossible--to beat a series drawn by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez. Beautiful ad, too!

V - 1985

Wow, remember V? I sort of do...

Rip Hunter - 1961

These Rip Hunter ads were always totally gorgeous.

DC Special/Batman - 1970

That DC Special features one of Neal Adams' best covers, and that's saying something.

Brave and The Bold: Strange Sports - 1962

Beauty of an ad; even if comics and sports don't mix very well...
