Much Better Than the Drafting They Do in the Army

December 1972

Jungle Action #2

I’m still amazed by the number of career-related ads in these older comics – I guess I was under the impression that people saw comics as “just for kids,” but Jungle Action from 1972 begs to differ.

Here we have an ad boasting of the benefits of learning drafting – a high-paying job that supposedly anyone can learn!


With a coast-to-coast shortage of draftsmen (no women?) and no strikes or layoffs, it must be the ideal career!
