While I am posting some obscure ads from the 1960s (I posted one in my last blog) I thought it might be interesting to post this one about the Flash (who would have been Barry Allen at the time.)
As some of you know I was writing "Science of ..." articles for a while. I stopped not because I wanted to but because I have run out of source material (I can write them if someone thinks there are some science related stuff they would like me to have a look at.) Mostly this came from the science titles getting either dropped by me or canceled (I do have to catch up on Captain Atom and the Flash though.) Anyway that is somewhat off topic. The strange thing about this ad for me is that I don't think in the modern day that we would ever see an ad which was focused more on science (even if it is just scientific trivia.) In comparison though the comic in the 1960s were far for in soft science fiction (science fiction not based in science fact) than modern day comics. So it is strange that today's more hard science based stories don't have any science in the ads, where in those days they had the opposite.
