Added 1 new A* page:I have a Gmail folder containing almost 1200 emails that I mailed to myself, each with a screenshot of a different kooky old comic page attached—from funny stuff I come across as I'm reading my way through old comics, either ones that have fallen into the public domain and are now free, or ones I've been reading through chronologically on Marvel Unlimited—or those from the various digital DC compilations of their old stuff I've been picking up when they go on sale dirt cheap.|
I'm currently on Justice League of America comics from the early '60s, but such is my backlog that what we have here is an elaborate and just plain crazy full page RC Cola ad from 1945, from a public domain Whiz Comics issue somewhere between #61 and #67 (my notes failed me : P). Normally I would just isolate a single panel from a page, but *every* panel in this ad is nuts:
Advertising is a heck of a business. =o (The Wheaties ad I had screenshotted from right before this RC one was...not PC enough to show.)
As usual for ads—and even for comics from the period—the work is uncredited, but the art might be by the illustrator involved in the creation of the recurring "R.C. and Quickie" duo: Creig Flessel.
