DC HOUSE ADS - PART ONE OF TWELVE DIAL H FOR HERO!
Hi reader! Welcome to Dial B for Blog volume three! This issue kicks off a massive 12-part tribute to the ads of Ira Schnapp and Gaspar Saladino. As the creator of this blog, I took my pen name from DC's Robby Reed character, introduced in DC's House of Mystery 156, January 1966. To celebrate the return of Dial B for Blog, we present every ad ever published for DC's "Dial H for Hero" series, plus a few amazing extras from me, Robby Reed, creator of this blog and author of this paragraph!
