Comic Book Ads!
This installment's comic ads come from All True Crime #39, and begin with this one for one of those learn piano at home programs... And who the hell says "Su'prise!" didn't the letterer plan properly for the first R? OK, maybe in some ways I'm becoming a bit of a fuddy-duddy, but I've kind of lost my taste for spending all kinds of money on fireworks every 4th of July (besides, other people are willing to spend the money while I enjoy their fireworks anyway)... so I see an ad like this in an old comic and find myself amazed... I mean, they sold fireworks through the mail?!? I guess I shouldn't be surprised, given how many places around the US I've seen that sells fireworks all year round! There was another ad in the same issue: I don't see how any bank can make you save a quarter per day, unless it actually follows you around and constantly pesters you to insert a quarter in it each day... Offered without comment... I mean, I could be really snarky about this, but I'll be nice this time!
