Help Support Comic Book Ads with Amazon!

Big news, everyone! Now you can help support Comic Book Ads by clicking on my link whenever you shop at Amazon! It won’t cost you anything extra, but it’ll give me a small percentage of everything you spend (which I would really, really appreciate!).

As of right now, it only works for Amazon’s U.S. site, but depending on how things go, I might set it up for Canada and the U.K. as well.

Also, I’m currently working my way through all my old posts to add the link. I’ve gotten the most recent ones, but it might be a while before I get to some of the older ones.

Anyway, I hope you’ll think of Comic Book Ads the next time you shop at Amazon!

Thank you!



Sorry, guys, but WordPress is giving me errors when I’ve been trying to upload my pictures, and I haven’t really had time to look into it yet, so there will be no ad today. 😥

In the meantime, here’s a picture of a cat reading a comic book!


Pulling Ads with Four Guys!

I’ve recently discovered some kindred spirits in Four Guys And A Comic – apparently these guys have a podcast, and occasionally have a “Pulling Ads” feature where they share their favorite ads from classic comics!

My personal favorites here are the ones for government surplus and the space playset!

I guess there are two more episodes out now, but I haven’t had a chance to watch them yet, so no spoilers, please! 😉

Happy Anniversary to Me!

Yes, it has been one year since I first started this blog! Thank you to all three of you who actually read it! In the past year I’ve published 64 posts, and a whole lot of cheesy old comic book ads. What have been some of your favorites?

Anyway, I hope that this year will bring even more posts, more visitors, and most of all, more awesome, nostalgic ads!

Scaling Back

Sorry, guys, but I seem to be having a hard time managing my time properly these days, so rather than promising two ad posts per week, for the time being I’m just planning to post new ads on Fridays. If I have any other sort of announcements or related material, I’ll post that on Tuesdays, or if I have a little extra time, I may slip in an actual post on a Tuesday, but for right now, Fridays are all I’m promising.

Battle of the Sea-Monkeys

I’m attempting to get back into the swing of things and start posting on my regular schedule again. So here’s a semi-post to get things started – not actually a comic book ad, but a fascinating article about the comic book ad mainstay, Sea-Monkeys, and what has happened to the creator’s widow in recent years. Thanks, Lura, for sharing this with me!

The Battle Over the Sea-Monkey Fortune


It’s Tuesday, and I have no new post for you today, and to all two of my loyal fans, I offer my deepest apologies. I’ve been incredibly busy lately (stupid real life interfering with my blog!), and next week is going to be even busier, so it looks like I probably need to take a couple weeks off.

But I promise that I will return, and as I’m getting close to the end of some of my original batch of comics, I’m going to be scanning some new ones in soon, so that’s pretty exciting!

Check back in a couple weeks, and I promise to have more stuff for you then.
