Black and White Wednesday: Creepy #58 Captain Company Ads

Welcome back to Groove City, baby! For a change of pace, howzabout we plant our peepers on a fistful of cavorting Captain Company ads from the back of Warren's Creepy #58 (November 1973)! Yeah, Ol' Groove thought you might dig that idea. There's some primo stuff in these awesome ads--including an early batch of the legendary Mego Super-Hero action figures and the legendary Heidi Saha poster and one-shot. Even my non-comicbook loving pals dug perusing the ads in the backs of Warren mags--the true "catalog for kids"!

  1. Love seeing these old ads! Especially the Megos, I remembered they were like $3 each. I really scraped my nickels & dimes together for those. I remember I had Spider-Man, the Green Goblin, the Lizard, Capt.A & the Falcon, the Incredible hulk,Ironman, Shazam/Capt.Marvel, Batman & Robin. I had my own DC/Marvel crossover/team-ups! I was disappointed in the way the Thing, Thor & Conan looked though.

    Thanks for bringing back some great childhood memories for me. I love your website, keep e'm coming! Hey remember Big Jim's Wolf Pack. It had a promo comic by John Buscema & Joe Sinnott. Had to love the Kirby art on the boxes & on their camper command post "The Beast"!
