Wonder Woman Paper Drive Ad-1944


Okay, okay, I know. Enough with Wonder Woman already. Sorry but here's yet another example of why golden age comic books are so rare and expensive. Ads like these encouraged kids to turn in old newspapers--AND COMICS-- to the government for recycling. AARRGH!

What's kind of funny, though, is if you notice, these PSAs mentioned various specific paper products - newspapers, shopping bags... but NOT comic books!

Granted, it's not exactly a huge leap of logic, but the characters never say anything like "This very comic book could help smash a Nazi after you're done reading it and recycle it!"
