Comic Strip Advertising

Comic strips in advertising is the focus of the Italian blog Balloons. Translation here.

Get a load of Capp, Richter and Steig smoking their Chesterfields in the "Like Your Pleasure BIG?" advert.

BIG h/t to Journalista!

Love the Ovaltine ad. Underweight kids used to be problem in the US! How can poor Johnny put on some weight?

Yeah, the Ovaltine one's my favorite, all that drama. And the name Spindle Shanks! What a great daily strip that'd make.
