Captain Marvel Ad-1972


As DC house ads go, this one was pretty simple and relatively dull...and yet it gave 13 year old me the biggest excitement I had ever had reading comic books up to that point! Yes, the book itself proved a tad disappointing fairly quickly but looking back, it was still better than many other titles of its day.

The book had a fundamental charm and sense of playfulness which despite its limits in the then-current marketplace make it a keeper.

I have these in Showcase format now and am pleased to do so.
