Easy Way to a Tuff Surfboard

For those who haven't seen it, here's the classic Frank Frazetta anti-smoking "ad" that appeared off and on for years in Jim Warren's magazines from the late sixties through the early seventies. This MAY well have been the great "Fritz's" last work in a comic-strip style. Strangely enough, I'm betting that most comics artists probably smoked fairly heavily in those days!


  1. "He was a boardless hodad like you and me!" What a great line! Remember the Batman episode where Batman and the Joker have a surf contest? I love Chief O'Hara's line "Kawabunga, Begora!"

    There's a Frazetta nymph oozing ll over this guy and all they can envy is his _surfboard_?

    Bah, let 'em smoke!
