The Back Covers

Here's some ads from the backs of comic books, 1938 - 1942.

A typewriter plus a beautiful desk! Only 10 cents a day. You have to write them for the total price. 1941.

The classic Daisy BB Gun. Don't put your eye out! 1942.

Great prizes for selling vegetable and flower seeds. 1942.

The perennial Johnson-Smith Company advertisement. This 1938 ad doesn't look much different from the 1970's ones I remember. Selling the same crap for almost the same price forty years later!

Fireworks! Fun for everyone. Explode them in your friend's face just like in the picture. 1939.

Those Johnson-Smith ads were fascinating well into the 70's!
