G.I. Joe #33
If you want comics, here’s the place to get them! If you’ve ever read comics, you’ve probably seen ads for Mile High Comics – well, here’s the first of mine for you to check out!
SO! MANY!! COMICS!!! This has to be my listing with the most tags – I’ve actually learned quite a bit about comics just by typing all the titles!
G.I. Joe #33
Time for more classifieds – another grab bag of randomness! As always, we’ve got lots and lots of comics for sale, with a few other things thrown in too.
My favorite things here? 1) The fact that they’re advertising a hypnosis program as a “mental survival kit,” and 2) The disclaimer on the brass knuckle belt buckle: “Novelty purposes only – not intended for other uses.” 😉
Wonder Woman #37
I think this post wins for number of tags! Yep, you could buy just about any title from East Coast Comics, from Akira to X-Terminators!
What I wouldn’t give for prices like those on some of these titles today!
Much like the Columbia House ad featured in an earlier post, I think that ads for comic subscriptions are like snapshots in time, showing you a little glimpse of what was going on at the time. Here’s a Marvel subscription page from 1997.
I like the statement “YES, YOU CAN PHOTOCOPY THIS AD!” – I guess they finally realized that people don’t want to mangle their comic books just to redeem an offer!
