How Joe solved his "security problem"! (Comic Ads #17)
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.
If Out Cold! played on a person's feelings of worthlessness, this one goes straight for playing on your fears! Locksmithing Institute wants to make you feel as unsafe as possible, and assure you that knowing how to cut keys and pick locks is your way to security. One up on the International Correspondence Schools though: studying to be a locksmith didn't just get Joe an office job, it got him his own business! ...and probably a little bonus from June, judging by that look she's giving him at the end.
