Comic Book Ads!
From Hanna-Barbera Fun-In #9, here's a full-page ad for Kenner's SSP Racers, and I think that maybe my family got into these later than I remembered, because I definitely recall that we had the Black Widow!
Aw, look at the cute little camera! Such outdated technology! Then again, earlier in this same book was a two-page ad for Columbia House Record club... And yes, I know these Instamatics were extremely popular in their day!
Next, here's an ad from Mighty Samson #20... remember these groovy designs for Post Cereals?
And we're jumping way, way back for this one... yes, it's a full-page ad for Holy Pictures... and it was on the inside front cover of... wait for it (unless you can read it already... My Secret Marriage #8! Wow, someone did not know their target audience, did they?
This ad, from the inside back cover, was probably more successful, I'm guessing, even if it probably does not have the songs recorded by the original artists!
