Black and White Wednesday: Warren's Captain Company Ads from the Summer of 1979

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That's a fact, Groove-ophiles! Check out these Captain Company ads from the July 1979 ish of Creepy (#111 to be exact): Star Wars, Star Trek, Superman, Tolkien, Conan, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, the Incredible Hulk! Why, these same names quicken the pulse of fandom here in 2013, as well! Greatness is timeless, baby! Dig these ads...


  1. it's amazing, in less than five or six years, home movies would be completely passe due to VHS and affordable home video. you could get a whole movie for less than $10, or buy a blank and record anything you wanted.

    now kids complain if a movie isn't loaded with special features. great post!

  2. Wow Groove you brought back good memories! I still have some of these issues right now. Ah, fun times!
