“Thrill Someone You Love…” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Other Stuff That Catches The Eye!

John Kane

Well, I finally got The Haunted Scanner working so naturally I diddled and faffed around with it a bit. Put it through its paces and all that. Rather than have that time be classed as wasted I thought I’d share with you, the peoples of the World, some of the neglected visual delights within a bunch of 1971/1972 Marvel Comics. Adverts, I’m talking about adverts there. Look, it’s probably better than you fear but not as good as you hope. I can’t say fairer than that. So let’s skip back to the dawn of the 1970s via a scanner and some stapled and browning paper. In a way, it’s a kind of time machine. Maybe. Oh, it’s not making it any better is it? Anyway, this…

And like any pretence as to a point or purpose of any kind – I’m gone!

Next time there might even be something about COMICS!!!

  1. The “Peace Officer Training” ad seems straightforward, but Wait! What’s up with that chick on the couch?

  2. Brilliant. And I thought ads for Daisy BB guns were the creepiest ads in old comics. Comic book ads are the best – no matter when the book is from, you can’t believe people made ads like that. Even in books from ten years ago, the ads just seem so far removed from the norm/anything that would make a person want to buy said product.

  3. @James Woodward: Where I come from the police ads tend to stress walking about smiling at old people and pointing tourists in the right direction. They certainly don’t highlight the joys of throwing scumbags against walls or blowing chunks off targets. Must be a cultural thang! That woman on the couch still looks like it’s from a lost Ellroy-Lloyd Hopkins fumetti or something. Creepy.

    @Ben Lipman: They are a bit crackers aren’t they? And if comics used to be for kids then kids were certainly a sexually active and authoritarian lot back then! I hope you get “a thoughtful gift of love” for your Birthday!

    Thanks and the best to all.
