Mail Order Comic Book Crap

Here's an entertaining interview with Kirk Demarais about all those crappy toys and novelties you saw advertised in comic books when you were a kid. Kirk actually went and bought this stuff, and his book Mail-Order Mysteries: Real Stuff from Old Comic Book Ads! offers informative and entertaining reviews of the merchandise.

Never could afford that Polaris Sub? Read all about in Kirk's book!

Kirk's web page and info about ordering the book here.
