The stuff of genius. Now go look. Somebody needs to give these M.F.s a grant.

Rare Comic Ads

These ads are from the April 1950 issue of Blondie comics. These pre-date my existence in time, and are unfamiliar in content if not in form. All images link to giant versions for text perusal.

Let's commence with The Chevalier. Later becoming "The Shatner".



I wasn't even born yet, and I knew this was a ripoff....



Is this a camo lighter? In 1950??


That's right bitches, any car....



Published during the so-hot-they-need-a-full-page-color-ad era of tiny electric motor sales.



Because sane bargains aren't as thrilling......



A familiar form but unfamiliar content....



Lastly half-page entries (probably from Sundays) of the Flop Family, which mutated into Philander Flop (I realized in bed this morning and subsequently researched)......why do comics suck nowadays?
