Comic Book Ads Week, Day 3!
Today's ads come from All True Crime #46, and I've got to say, I really dig this first one because of that projector toy (no surprise there, I'd imagine). I've seen those offered a few times on eBay, but always out of my price range! I suppose after we've taken care of losing all the extra weight, getting our hair back, and putting on some muscle, us comic book readers would be all ready to be a finger print expert -- but does this guy look like a predecessor to CSI, or just a standard private eye? What I find amusing about this ad is that they could get a picture of a curvy blonde woman, but then used line art drawings of men admiring her???? Okay, all of us who read Thor comics when Hercules would exclaim, "By the zestful zither of Zeus!", now you know what a zither is! Girdle ads in comics... yes, that's right! What can I say about this ad that you aren't already thinking when you see the face on this guy?
