More early 1960s ads from Charlton this time around, these appeared in Konga #7 and other places! This ad was from the inside front cover... apparently someone figured there must've been a lot of balding men reading comic books, eh? I can't imagine seeing a Rogaine ad in current comics!
Mark Anderson is the proprietor of the Andertoons.com website, from which he also posts a daily blog that I believe would be of interest to my fellow geeks! Mark grew up in Iowa, the youngest of four children. These days, he lives in the Chicago area with his wife, two kids, dog, two cats, “and numerous dust bunnies.” Mark is a professional cartoonist (the first featured on “The Way of the Geek”), whose work has been published in such varied publications as Reader's Digest, The Wall Street Journal, Good Housekeeping, Forbes, Barrons, Woman's World and many others. His cartoons also appear on greeting cards.
This time around, it's more Marvel stuff, beginning with some Captain America stuff you've probably already seen if you were reading my late Captain Ameriblog! Above is a 1979 Crackerjack sticker featuring Cap!
Just in case anyone had the idea that it was Charlton who was the king of retitling books and retaining the numbering (despite no connection to the old title), I present this edition of By The 10s!
This title began as All-Select, featuring Marvel's Big Three and a few other characters! Issue #10 above!
After three posts of Kenner Fun Catalogs, I figure you guys are ready for something different... so this time around, it's some ads from early 1960s Charlton books! These ads appeared in Konga #6, as well as other titles, no doubt! The first ad I'm presenting is an old Johnson Smith novelties ad! There's a lot of the usual suspects there... the live chameleon, the pocket transistor radio, hypnotic whirling coin, and miniature camera! The Vacutex is kind of an oddball item, being designed to get rid of blackheads... not quite the fun kind of stuff the rest of the page offered!
I am a former graphic designer turned medical assistant turned truck driver who's into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
