365 Days of DC House Ads, Day 143

House ad for Strange Adventures v.1 #213 [Deadman] (July-August 1968); printed in Wonder Woman v.1 #177 (July-August 1968)
Ad designed and lettered by Gaspar Saladino

Since "one picture is worth a one thousand words," as the ad tells us, here's the full gorgeous cover for that ish:

And here, in the form of a double-page spread from that issue by Neal Adams, is a couple bajillion more!

Neal Adams: the man voted most likely to freak me out in the late seventies.

That impressive cover looks even more impressive with the background in black and white, as in the ad. Can you imagine how that version would have caught the eye on a 1968 newsstand?

Yes! I certainly woulda bought it!

A thousand words? Looks like they owe us 997.
