TVTA is pleased to present an Australian-heavy feature of classic 1980s artists and bands. The adverts were featured in DC superhero comics such as Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Super Powers, and were published by The Federal Publishing Company Proprietary Limited which was granted permission by DC to reprint and publish their titles under the name Federal Comics to Australian readers. To see some examples of the actual comics go to TVTA’s post here
For now, let’s get into the groove…
Do You Really Want To Shave Me?
Hmm, I never knew Boy George had a goatee-beard in 1984 (neither did he I reckon!). A previous owner of the comic book in which this Culture Club advert appeared found it necessary to draw a beard not once but twice on the image of George. A quick image search of Boy George reveals that in recent years he has indeed sported a beard… so maybe our cheeky little comic book beard-doodler was seeing into the future?
Moving on… we have singular sensation Prince! Followed by some Rock Video and Rock Postcards!
Moving on from Australia but staying in the same decade, we present now some 1980s adverts from the Netherlands and the UK.
As always, thanks for looking 🙂
