Fresh from TVTA’s scanning room comes this wonderful double page ad for a 1977 Milk Duds Superduds sweepstakes as presented by DC’s archvillain the Joker. Prizes on offer were an all expenses paid three day trip to New York that included a tour of the DC Comics office where an artist would ‘draw you’ into an upcoming issue of one of their titles. Other prizes included superhero watches, subscriptions and ten Schwinn bicycles! Who would have thought the Joker could have been so generous?
US. Weird War Tales. 1977.
Other scans include the following ads for the DC Superfriends Supercase in which you could store your 45 inch vinyl records, plus three comic covers from the DC titled Weird War Tales. As always, thanks for looking 🙂
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.
