13 tales

Another wonderful ad from 1968 — was that the golden age for house ads I wonder? The art comes from the ever-reliable pencil of Neal Adams. DC Special was an all-reprint title that ran themed issues; sometimes a particular artist was featured, more often it was a particular subject. It also acted as a kind of try-out title on occasion, with both Wanted and Strange Sports Stories debuting there.

Robby Reed tells me that the ad was the creation of letterer extraordinaire Gaspar Saladino.
