DC Mail-away toys

These hand-drawn adverts for mail-order toys, games, stamps and books were common to see in DC comic publications throughout the 1970s. In a similar style to the Heroes World adverts of the same era, the drawings are often fun and simplistic versions of the characters and toys they are meant to represent.
