We Pause For This Commercial Message Pt. 1: Snakes Alive!

Today starts a new regular feature on the Arf Lovers Blog: “We Pause For This Commercial Message”. This nuttiness will showcase wacky old comic book ads and ads featuring cartoonists. I originally bought “Manhunt” #13 (1952) for the 5 page Frank Frazetta story within. Now I like it much better for this Snakes Alive! ad in the back. “Be the first in your crowd to wear the new SNAKE BOW-TIE…the beautiful bow-tie with the disappearing snake! SCARE THE GALS! STARTLE THE MEN!”

Send in YOUR fave comic book ads and ads featuring cartoonists to share with Arf Lovers for this exciting new feature!
