Comics Ads: Fawcett Comics PSAs!

Fawcett Comics certainly did their part with Public Service Announcements in their comics, especially those related to supporting the war effort! Most Golden Age books I've read sort of just pay lip service to the war, with a blurb at the end of a story about buying war bonds, while others would include stories based around buying war bonds... Fawcett did the latter, as well as putting out these ads!

As you can see, even the Marvel Family members were used in these ads... but it wasn't all for war bonds and stamps, as you'll see after the jump!

The paper drives were probably one reason most Golden Age books are rare these days, as I'd imagine quite a few were turned in for the war effort!

Here's some more war bond and stamp ads:

It wasn't just the Marvels involved with the effort, Captain Midnight did his part, too!
