I read this series at the time...and totally didn't get it.

I wish comic companies ran ads like this nowadays...

Brave and The Bold: Strange Sports - 1963

Ok, so it's not "horror" or "weird"...but it is "strange"!

DC TV - 1976

Super Friends, Shazam!, Isis, and...Welcome Back, Kotter? This is like one of those "Which one does not belong?" SAT questions.

The House of Secrets - 1974

Interesting layout for this ad...gets all the relevant info on there, with no, er, dead space!

Robin - 1992

"Moving covers"...ah, remember that wonderful era in comics?

The Witching Hour - 1969

It occurred to me, since its only two weeks away from Halloween, I should be posting as many DC horror ads as I can find--so here you go!

The Unexpected - 1979

That Unexpected cover always creeped me out as a kid...I should pick up that issue sometime and see what the story is like!

Superboy - 1961

DC says: "How much does an issue of Superboy cost? Even we don't know!"

The World's Greatest Super-Heroes - 1974

A very awkward ad--it looks like Clark, Barry, Dinah, and Bruce are all wearing those sandwich board things to me.

Plus, Bats looks really pissed.

The Heckler - 1992

Because one Heckler ad isn't enough...

The Heckler - 1992

Anyone remember this series? I do not, though the ads were certainly unusual...

Fox and the Crow - 1965

The Fox and the Crow probably didn't realize that Stanley and His Monster, introduced this issue, would eventually push them out of of their own book. Ouch!

Twigger Twins - 1973

Not a book you saw advertised very much!

Amethyst - 1983

Ernie Colon = Awesome.

Wasteland - 1987

I really liked Wasteland when it came out, which was just before the Vertigo line. I think it was just a little too ahead of its time.
