Jungle Action #2
GRIT has longtime been a standard in comics. We’ve already seen an example from 1980, but here’s one from eight years earlier.
In the ad from 1980, it seems like they’re begrudgingly accepting of girls (“I guess we’ll let them sell papers too if we have to…”), but here they’re 100% clear that this is a boys’ club! They make reference to the sellers’ maleness eight times! I guess girls just had to miss out on that 7¢ profit.
