Eveready Horror!

“They recover power, and bounce back for extra life!” Sounds like someone describing zombies. But in fact this is a famous tagline used in many Golden Era ads for Eveready Batteries (that’s the one with the other cute ‘lil kitty on ‘em.) Over at Ger’s Fab 50’s blog he’s recently posted a brilliant sampling of these compact and amazingly illustrated ads featuring thrilling horror themes and true “brush with death” storylines. Stunning artwork too, highly recommended viewing!

Ger’s blog is a treasure trove of superb comic art of all types for all ages, don't miss a single post!

I can't even compete with that. There's no way I'll ever get my tail to conform to that nifty, lightning bolt pattern.

Agreed...Ger's whole series of posts about Creig Flessel's Everyeady ads is one of the best comic blog finds of all time!
