Electroman (Comic Ads #4)

Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.

Electroman swoops in to sing the praises of the Cleveland Institute of Electronics to jobless Jim. Why does he bust through a wall to do it though? Seems like he's more of a superhero for keeping bricklayers employed to me. He even damages the danged coupon!

The coupon probably won't help, but you can probably still get the School Catalog at least, because the Cleveland Institute of Electronics is still around, and has been since 1934.

This I expected even less.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I own all the comics I'm listing on these ads- I have to be able to look through them to know what ads are in them, after all- but I didn't remember this ad, when I ran across it. I've run across some well-remembered goodies, and some seldom seen doozies, so I'm having fun. :)
