Grin and (Care) Bear It!

May 1986

Masters Of The Universe #1

It’s the Care Bears – here to offer you a deal on all of your favorite cartoon tie-in comics! Star Comics was a division of Marvel that was used mostly for cartoon-related comics and other titles that would appeal to young children.

OK, I know subscription pages generally aren’t very interesting, but just (Care) bear with me – I’m almost finished with each of the comics I’ve been posting from, and soon I’ll have a whole new batch!

Christmas Star

March 1988

Visionaries #3

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…

I Know Colors! I’m a Musical Genius!

Visionaries #3

I find this ad in this comic kind of odd in that the ad’s intended audience seems much younger than the comic’s intended audience. I’d say this kid is – what? – maybe three? Whereas I’d say the low end of this comic’s audience is maybe seven.

Anyway, here are two Muppets-themed keyboards – a regular Muppets keyboard for regular kids, and a Muppet Babies keyboard for baby kids!
