Charlton April 1972 Ad #1

For my buddy Michael Ambrose (creator and editor of the Charlton Spotlight), it's time for more ads from Charlton Comics!

As I've noted before... a lot of the ads in the Charlton books tend to be a bit... well... different from those seen in DC and Marvel books. Atypically, this page here features two items you could find advertised in a book by the "big two" (if you looked long enough).

Seems like a pretty good deal on that 8mm projector, doesn't it? But I'd bet it's silent, and runs on batteries... assuming it works at all. I remember seeing an ad in a DC or Marvel book for a projector that was a bit pricier, and came with a screen, too!

The binoculars... well, I don't have much to say about them, so enjoy them for yourself!

(Note: I wish I still had some of my late 50s/early 60s Charlton books, when they had their own products for sale in the comics... some of that stuff was pretty funky!)
