This Con Is Super, Thanks for Asking!

February 1976

Claw The Unconquered #5

OK, I know that I should have an ad from the ’80s this week, but I just finished the ads I’d been posting from G.I. Joe, and now I can’t get my scanner to work, so we’re stuck with ’60s and ’70s for the time being.

Anyway – It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Super DC Convention! Lots of great stuff, with no real specifics – they don’t name a single guest or panel that will be there – hardly adequate by today’s con standards! 😉

I think it’s interesting that they mention Superman’s birthday – he was created in 1938, which means that in 1976 he would’ve been 38 years old – not exactly a notable milestone.

Na-Na Na-Na Na-Na Na SUBSCRIPTION!

Claw The Unconquered #5

I have a new buddy who’s a huge fan of Batman, so in honor of this new friendship, here’s the ad with Batman most prominently featured (out of all the ones I have scanned, anyway). Surprisingly, this seems to be Robin’s first appearance in my blog, so let’s give a big Comic Book Ads welcome to Robin!

“HI, ROBIN!!!”

Something I find interesting about this is that you get $3.00 worth of comics, but it doesn’t actually specify how many issues that equals. I’m assuming it would be a year’s worth, but just think it’s odd that they don’t mention it.

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!

DeCk the Halls!

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!

Happy Holidays!

Do They Have a Feud With West Coast Comics?

December 1989

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!

In the Days Before Internet…

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

Remember when people had attention spans? Well back in my day, people didn’t need TV and the internet for their entertainment! They could listen to stories and use their imaginations for the rest!

Here we have a broad assortment of stories on record (and even some on cassette!) for you to choose from! SUPER ENTERTAINMENT, SUPER VALUE indeed!
