Comic Book Ads!

The first item this time around comes from Alarming Tales #5, and it's a pretty cool ad -- or at least, the item is pretty cool! The ad certainly makes it look as though the "jet engine" there is similar to the rocket engines for model rockets!

From the same book comes this ad for 7 Gigantic Dinosaurs -- and what do we know about these? They're inflatable, they are up to four feet tall, and have "toss-up feet action" -- what the heck? It kind of sounds like it's weighted on the feet so you can throw them up and they'll land on their feet. I recognize most of the dinosaur names listed there -- but sea serpent???

Next, we have this set of two half-page ads from Alarming Tales #6 -- and I'm going to ignore the stamp one, because I feel like I've spent enough time mocking them. Instead, let's look at the Zorro Television Set! I am not sure what to make of this... they call it a television set, but clearly it is not a TV set.... then they say eight rolls of film -- but is it film? We have no idea if it is actually film, or just printed paper -- and I'm leaning towards the latter, because the two knobs you can see really look like that sort of thing -- if it is film, the "set" must be tiny!

Finally, here's another muscle-building course from the same issue!
