Venus

Here's a nifty Atlas ad from the 1950's for VENUS. The character was Bill Everett's baby but this art doesn't seem to be by him. In fact, it looks like Atlas was attempting to push Venus to girl readers as something other than" just" a comic book...and, of course, promote RENO BROWNE while doing so!

Joe Maneely, perhaps? Anyway, they were all over the place with Venus' book for a while; they did try a romance comic approach, and as you probably know, eventually ended up doing weird adventure/horror stuff.

Thanks for posting this- I'm a huge Venus fan, and I had not seen this ad before!
