The Secret Society of Super-Villains #12
I almost forgot to post this one, but I think that a few days after Christmas is still OK, right?
So here we’ve got the “All-new! Jam-packed holiday edition!” of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! (Hmm… does that mean there’s also a non-holiday edition where Rudolph just does regular day-to-day stuff?)
We’ve also got “The battle you never thought you’d see!” – Superman vs. Wonder Woman! OK, I’m going to go ahead and take a wild stab at this and guess that they start out fighting because of some misunderstanding, and then once they realize that, they actually team up to fight evil – am I right?? Well, no matter what this comic is like, at least it’s got to be better than Batman vs. Superman (“MARTHA!!!!!”)!
Sorry to do two ’80s ads in a row, but I wanted to do the Christmas ads during the Christmas season, and these are what I had available.
Wow, prices sure jumped in the course of only a few years! In last week’s ad from 1985, cover price was 60¢ per issue and the subscription price was 42¢. Only three years later, We’ve got a cover price of $1.00 and subscription price of 75¢!
Well, it’s still a bargain compared to prices these days…
G.I. Joe #33
Hello, loyal comic book ad enthusiasts! Sorry I missed last week – I was busy with Christmas stuff. But you know who else is busy with Christmas stuff? Iron Man! Yes, he’s bringing folksy, outdated, generic toys to all the girls and boys! …Or maybe he’s just trying to get you to buy comics.
Only 42¢ per copy?! What I wouldn’t give for that price (or even the full cover price of 60¢) these days! Why/when/how did comics get so expensive? Most new issues I buy are $3.99 each! Oh, well – maybe if I’m lucky I’ll find some comics under the tree this year!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there!

Claw The Unconquered #5
It’s Christmas (well, almost, anyway)! And what better way to celebrate than with comics? Here we’ve got limited collectors’ editions of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Christmas with the Super-Heroes!”
Not only do you get stories, but you also get greeting cards, puzzles, a sing along, a special fun section, and a diorama! That sounds like a whole lot of holiday fun for such a low, low price!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Wonder Woman #37
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and you know what the means – presents! If you still haven’t gotten a gift for that special someone, don’t worry – DC’s got you covered!
Yep, with all these titles to choose from, you’re sure to find something for anybody (well, almost anybody) on this list!
