Marvel Comics # 1 Ad!


Here is an ad from aCOMPLETE DETECTIVE magazine dated October, 1939. As you can see, the ad is clearly touting the first appearances of The Human Torch,Sub-Mariner (yes, I know all about MOTION PICTURE FUNNIES WEEKLY #1 but you know what I mean!), and Marvel in general. It should go without saying but just in case you wanted to take them up on the dime offer in the ad, please note that the last time one of these suckers publically changed hands it went for about half the money in Scrooge McDuck's money bin! If I were you, I'd settle for the relatively recent Marvel reprint.
