How Alan Got His Christmas Bike A Shelby - That He'll Always Like (Comic Ads #73)
Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.
I first ran across this ad in the pages of The Complete War Battles, from Gwandanaland Comics. Around the time this ad came out, it seems that bikes and BB guns were all the rage, and comic ads promoting both were fairly prevalent. This Shelby 52 sounds like the top of the line though. A headlight and taillight? A horn? Dang, I want one of these now!
