Marvel Magazine Ad

A rather unusual but excellent ad for all the great, pulpy horror magazines that Marvel published. What's unique about it is not merely the grouping of different characters but the cute but creepy way they are drawn. I've certainly never seen anything so cartoony from Alfredo Alcala. Nonetheless, its quite a joy to behold. It's sorta like a demented version of Not Brand Echh!, but because of the black and while it also appears as a kindred soul to the great Fleischer cartoons (and--at their best-- they aren't that distant in quality, which is a testament to the greatness of the magazines).

I would buy all of those magazines in a heartbeat.
