Comic book ads: Superman on TV

superman on tv

I poured over comic books when I was a kid, memorizing not only the stories but artist and writer credits and even the ads.

This one pre-dated me – it ran in DC comics when the original “Adventures of Superman” series ran on TV, 1952 to 1958 – but it’s a nice example of cross-promotion in house ads.

And how nice that it steered people toward their daily newspaper.
