Comic book ads reached out to provide a variety of messages to their readers. Bob Hope starred in DC comic books, including in some of its public service messages; this one ran in Superboy #112 (April 1964). © 2021 DC
Heck, this ad in EC’s Two-Fisted Tales #30 (November–December 1952) not only promoted a promising new series, it also clearly identified some staffers (and taught readers to look for signatures). © 2021 EC Publications, Inc.
