The Winner. Built by Converse. Just for Sears. (Comic Ads #54)

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.
The whole ad, closing in the white space that was framing it.
Just the artwork, so you can get a better look at the comic frames.

So, not a lot to say about this one. Apparently, Converse built a shoe just for Sears.

Is this really a comic ad? Yep. The layout is a little different, but those four little frames make this a comic ad.
