This Classic Comic Ad is from 1968 when Sgt. Rock still ruled the world. The late, great, Joe Kubert cranked out 80 pages of military adventure in this giant sized comic. This ad was from 68, but the comic didn’t hit to closer to 69. It’s a simple advertisement, simply calling this the “Big One” and letting Kubert’s art and the bombastic cover do the selling.

At only 25 cents for 80 pages, this was a steal back then. A quick look on Ebay shows you’ll pay about 100 times that amount for the comic in today’s market as it runs in the $25 range. I haven’t read this issue, but I gotta admit… This ad has me tempted!
