Swamp Terror! / Ads (Part 2)

Not only are you getting more leggy cheesecake art aplenty with today’s post, but also magical / instant lingerie to bra panels, headlights, another hot conniving wench, and even a printer error color drop-out on page 4, (all apologies.) I badly colored her hair yellow though so as not to leave anyone completely insane with confusion.

From the November 1954 issue of Mysteries Weird & Strange #10











++++++++++++++++++++++++++

MORE ADS (Part Two)
Another sampling of 50’s comic book ads featuring the timeless, screaming classic “Hey Skinny!” The other ads are screaming something else altogether…




And finally, some of my favorite, unintentionally creepy (or are they?) pre-code mail-order ads, featuring Blondie and Sandy, two cuddly, huggable, adorable dolls with rubber wonder skin! Yes, everybody loves Blondie, won’t you? And oh Sandy, you cute little topless redhead, tell me again about how wet you get after a few drinks. Doesn’t take a genius. And boys--- don’t forget to Rush Order ‘ol Puncho to help work off all that pent-up pre-pubescent frustration!


PS: Blondie, obviously annoyed that Sandy was getting all the attention in the other ad, later changed her name and made another more seductive appearance (sans sack dress, socks, and shoes) in ads of her own.

One would almost think you were trying to instill shame in us for wanting cheesecake.

You're not channeling Dr. Wertham, are you?

Incidentally, that splash panel looked familiar, so I consulted comics.org for details.

Mysteries Weird and Strange #10 is essentially a reprint of Strange Mysteries #2 from the same publisher.

Here's the link to the original comic...http://www.comics.org/details.lasso?id=9256

GREAT STORY AND GREAT ADS! YESTERDAY I COULD TELL THIS WAS GOING TO BE A WILD WEEK OF POSTS AND SO FAR YOU HAVE TOTALLY DELIVERED. NOT THAT YOU NEVER DELIVERED BEFORE, BUT THIS WEEKS THEME IS JUST EXCELLENT. THANKS!!

Not my intention... but if for some reason you feel like you should be ashamed of something then you are of course more than welcome to make that assumption.

PAGE 7 RULES! Almost as much as pg. 6...

Man, what a great tale! Even without the ample cheesecake dessert, the main course is quite filling. And I plan to start emulating Ned's dashing "Green Plaid Jacket with Purple Jodhpurs" fashion sense IMMEDIATELY!

As to those ads...um...wow...I just...um, no, not gonna go there...I ... ah, forget it!

And I really could have done without your "Sandy" commentary, Karswell! That's gonna haunt me all day! In fact, I'm going to go make use of the emergency eye wash RIGHT NOW!

The Vicar of VHS said...

PS--and surely I'm not the only one to notice the strangely womb-like cave they toss Ned down on pg. 5.

Okay, maybe I am.

Look out below!

The family named its estate Swamp House? Yeeesh--the days before marketing!

As for the ads--Skinny Guy still has his bikini babe. The bag of bones physique is clearly under-rated. I think Chest Manhulk is just a player-hater.

I wet....... yeah me too.

Too bad that we had to lose "little" Cora to the swamp. Cheesecake is fine, but a little sensual degradation before the end might have been more titillating.

It's rare that I find myself the most morally upright person in the room, but DAMN--strange things happen at THOIA! :)

When all is said and done, you actually are a Vicar after all... but in my defense (for something a doll actually said, not me) I could go over to Mad Mad Mad Mad Movies and probably find about 40 things just as offensive in one of your reviews so quit callin' the kettle black, Jack! And while you're over there by the kettle better stir the pot a little more, I think the kitten brains and puppy paws are almost ready to serve.

chill out, karswells just being funny again
the theme this week is obviously over exaggeration of sexual themes or are you all too repressed to just laugh along????? its a plastic doll for freaks sake!!!!!!!! some how I bet the vicar is just joking too

Karswell said...

>karswells just being funny again

Yeah, we're all just breakin' balls around here, it's all part of the fun and horror.

Also, if anyone is looking for the Wayne Howard R.I.P. post I removed it because apparently it was very old news submitted to me. I'm sorry if I upset anyone. Twice.

Lies and slanders, sir! I defy you to find such an aberration!

(And when you do, I'll pull it for my year-end "Top 10 Sinful Remarks" countdown... ;) )

I mean, obviously I've got a doll fetish, but child dolls? Everyone draws a line somewhere...

Now CPR dolls...THOSE chicks can treat you right...
