Groovy Posts of Christmas Past: Presents and the Comicbook Ads That Made Me Want 'Em

Happy Holidays, Groove-ophiles! For the rest of the week we're gonna be showcasing Posts of Christmas Past--in other words, re-runs or reprints of some of Ol' Groove's fave posts from Decembers other than this one. ;D Hope you enjoy 'em!

This one's from December 18, 2010!

Ho, ho, ho-wzit goin, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove spends a lot of time yakkin' about the covers, and splashes, and stories, and art in our beloved Groovy Age comics, but I don't seem to spend enough time on the ads. The ads were as much a part of the fun (sometimes more) of the comix experience as any of the rest of the aforementioned items. Heck, I remember buying a few comics just for certain ads! Crazy, huh? Crazy like a fox, baby, 'cause when you handled those ads the right way, you could lay some heavy hints on your parents for Christmas goodies! For example...









How 'bout you, Groove-ophile? Did you find any of these awesome items under your tree?

See ya Monday in 2018 for our first new post of the New Year!

Merry Christmas, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove wishes you the best of the best today. By now you've probably opened all of your presents, but I have one more for ya, baby! From 1979, here's DC's Super-Star Holiday Special (DC Special Series #21) featuring Jonah Hex, Batman (Frank Miller's first-ever Batman art!), DC's horror hosts, Sgt. Rock, and the Legion of Superheroes (with gorgeous art by Jose Louis Garcia Lopez, who also provided the magnificent cover). A more dazzling and dy-no-mite array of Christmas comics you'd be hard pressed to find! Eat your heart out, Santa!
