Chris and Reggie's Weird Comics History ep. 26 - Classic Comic Book Advertisements 2

Sea Monkey Blues

Greetings, pulpophiles! In this episode, Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) step back into the "between pages" of comic books, known as Classic Comic Book Advertisements, the Return! First, they'll detail the history and innovations of GRIT magazine, despite never having seen a copy. Then, they discuss Joe Orlando and his unforgettable ad for Sea Monkeys, as well as the dark secret behind these "instant" aquatic life forms...and it's not that they aren't monkeys. Finally, the impressionable hosts talk about two-dimensional toy soldiers, the ads that enticed them, and the man who drew two of the most memorable ones, Russ Heath! It's an episode jam-packed with commercialism, and you won't even have to pay C.O.D.
