DC Big Eight Ad 1943

I really love this DC house ad that appeared in their July-August, 1943 comics. The military theme was consistent for a lot of the ads of the time. Most of DC's books sold thousands and thousands of copies a month to servicemen overseas. They were a big part of our fighting men's morale during the war. My morale would be pretty good too if I got to read cool books like Action, Detective, and Flash Comics every month. This ad is from Superman #23, which sports my all time favorite cover by the great Jack Burnley.

It's the crown jewel of my comic collection. I wish I could collect more books from the Golden Age but the 70's and 80's are more my financial speed.
