365 Days of DC House Ads, Day 359: The year everybody got the power of super-jumping for Christmas

House ad for Green Lantern/Green Arrow #113; Batman #309; Superman #333; and The Brave and the Bold #148; (all March 1979) printed in House of Mystery #266 (March 1979)
Ad designed and lettered by Gaspar Saladino, ad art unsigned (José Luis Garcia-López?)

Two of these four issues had fantastic Christmas covers by one of my top five Batman artists, Jim Aparo!

Covers of Batman #309 and The Brave and the Bold #148, both covers with pencils and inks by Jim Aparo and colors by Tatjana Wood

By the way, what were the crooks on the cover of B&B #148 doing? Why, that's simple...they were buttlegging!

My guess for that promo art is Ross Andru pencils (esp. based on the Superman & Batman figures) and Dick Giordano inks.

I just posted the page to the main GCD list and already have one reply in agreement. Further updates as the situation warrants, but nothing to interrupt your Boxing Day plans over. Hope you and everyone else chez vous had a merry Christmas, Bully!
