Billy, you can either have a seat cover or a stylish jacket. I know this’ll be a tough choice.

April 12, 2012

I present you two diametrically opposed 1940s comic advertisements, which bookended the All-Time Sports Comics entry featured here last week. The above seat covers — every child’s wildest fantasy — were found on the inside of the cover. Then, at the back, you have this jacket:

GENUINE RAYON SATIN. Presumably it came with a tube of Brylcreem so your hair would be appropriately styled and shiny.

So, which would you think would have more appeal to the young male eyes that formed the vast majority of the book’s audience?
