This Dazzlingly Clever ad appeared in 1970. It Draws Comment here due its sheer economy and Descriptive Clarity. When they say “they don’t make ads like that any more,” this is what they’re talking about.

The comic being touted here was a one-off, part of the DC Special series of reprints. It must’ve been successful as more followed, and there was a even a short-lived Wanted series later on in the mid-70s.
