Everyone Can Sell – Unlike Those Snobs at GRIT!

September 1963

X-Men #1

Well, this is it – the final ad from X-Men #1! Here’s a great opportunity for you to earn money by selling Christmas cards!

Just based on this ad, I like Wallace Brown better than GRIT – they actually encourage everyone to participate in this – not just boys! If I’d been a kid in the ’60s who wanted to earn money, this seems like a better (and somewhat more legitimate) option than a lot of the other choices out there.

A Super-Special Holiday Treat!

February 1976

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!

December 1972

Jungle Action #2

Here’s yet another ad trying to tempt kids with fantastic prizes in exchange for hocking stuff to their friends and family.

The thing that strikes me the most about this is the over-contoured faces of the kids – really, artist, I think you’ve got plenty of detail there!
