Comic Book Ads!
This time around, the ads are from Dell's Thirteen... Going on Eighteen #26! And I'm sure the readers of this book about a young teenage girl are all so concerned about building up their muscles, right? Mocking aside, I've always been amazed at how many muscle-building ads there have been in comics over the years -- and yet these days, when we (and yes, I include myself in this group) as comic book readers probably could use the benefits that they offer most, they're not advertising in the comics any more! I'm not sure why any one would want these posters hanging up on their walls... those are some pathetic puppies, and wouldn't they inspire some nightmares? OK, I've been skipping over this ad over the past few issues I've glanced through, but it's so ubiquitous, one can't avoid it! Next, from Thirteen #27, is this ad, and these posters are something I can see a young girl wanting on her walls -- no nightmare fuel here! And just to round out this installment, here's a Daisy BB Gun ad!
