The MARVEL SILVER AGE AD AWARDS

Hello reader! Recently, we've been presenting various collections of vintage Marvel house ads from the 1960s, including the Fantastic Four, Daredevil, and dozens more.

Now that we're done (for now), it's time for Robby to give out AWARDS to the best and worst of the bunch! We're skipping the nomination process and going right to the winners.


Note: The "Marvel Ad Award" award seen on the right is based on the ad industry's CLIO award, given annually for excellence in advertising. It's like an Oscar for ads!
