Comic Book Ads Week, Day 5!
And it's the last day of this week-long series of comic book ads! And again, we're looking at ads from Amazing Detective Stories, this one from issue #13.... now, I still don't believe you can learn any combat technique from books alone, but I do think this ad looks pretty good! Here's yet another fireworks ad on the top of this page... and I have to say, that's a pretty cool looking set of walkie talkies advertised on the bottom! Seriously, what the hell is up with this ad? Looks like Moe Howard singing opera.... what does that picture have to do with hair loss????? You think the hair loss ad was weird? Look at this pimple ad from Amazing Detective Stories #12 -- and check out the drawing near the bottom of the first column of text... those hands don't belong to the person that face belongs to, clearly! Did they hire a midget to pop their pimples or something? We'll finish this post up with this weird ad for Mason Shoes, telling you that you can start your own shoe selling business through this ad! I'm guessing this didn't work out too well for many people.
