The Secret Society of Super-Villains #12
It’s been a while since I’ve done a classified page, so here you go! I’m actually kind of surprised to see X-Ray Spex in 1978 – for some reason I thought that was more of a ’50s/’60s thing (but apparently I was mistaken on that).
I think probably my favorite “WTF” ad on this page is: “PARENTS bug you? Try Ego Power! Send $7 for instructions” – ummm… OK… With a (lack of) description like that, it makes me wonder if anybody actually took the bait! (And if any of you out there actually did, then please let me know what this is all about!)

Claw The Unconquered #5
It’s another random grab bag of mini ads!
The one that strikes me the most here is the one for live seahorses – they’ll send you two “freshly caught” mated pairs, with at least one pregnant. OK, I have two main thoughts on this:
- Sending live, pregnant seahorses through the mail seems like it would be prohibitively difficult/risky.
- Capturing seahorses from the wild and then sending them through the mail seems rather cruel… and seems like it should be illegal.
At least Sea Monkeys are in a type of suspended animation when they’re shipped, but live, conscious animals is a whole different story!
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!
