I think that the Lois Lane must have been the only comic I got this month! I really hit my stride in the summer of '61 - can't wait until we get (back) there!

The last championship that the Philadelphia Eagles would win to this point. Very sad. When it comes to old time NFL teams, I rather lean toward the Eagles.

Both the cover and interior artwork on this the last of DC's western title was fabulous! Pity it was destined to cease publication within a year.
And why would they call Johnny Thunder's fulsome protagonist Madame 44 when that's clearly a Colt 45 she's wielding? Could she have been named after some of her noteworthy physical attributes then? Was that allowed by the CCA at the time?
lelak wrote:The final 12 issues of All-Star Western (beginning with #108, when JT seized control of the cover masthead) make a great "stand-alone" title -- especially since #108 featured JT's origin -- and are certainly worthy of a collected edition reprint. Not sure if anyone else would buy it, but I would!
I'd fight you for it!

seattleguy wrote:One sports note for those who may not know this but Chuck Bednarik of the Eagles was the last player to play the full 60 minutes of a NFL championship football game going both offense and defense. Maybe the last player ever to do so in a game. Talk about tough.
It was not uncommon for star players to play both ways up until the early sixties, even quarterbacks! Can you imagine asking one of these coddled quarterbacks these days, e.g. Tom Brady, to go in at defensive halfback?
Also note that QB Norm Van Brocklin was doing the punting for the Eagles, and HB Paul Hornung was doing the placekicking for the Packers. Narrow specialists these players were not.

A lot of the material in those publications is a blur to me today, but the one thing I can remember with clarity is Pontiac's very successful advertising campaign from 1959 to around 1970....

Why would my parents subscribe to all three? Was one of my cousins selling subscriptions? I dunno. But I used to cut stuff out of the mags and file it away.
While my family subscribed to the newsmagazines, Maclean's when I was in grade school and then later Time, we never had subscriptions to any of Life, Look or Saturday Evening Post. My local library branch though was just a short block away and carried both Life and Saturday Evening Post magazines.
The ads I remember ogling as a kid were for the Firestone tires with which the Indianapolis 500 winning race car was always equipped plus the ones for the very modern dual oven ranges and side-by-side refrigerators in upscale colours such as harvest gold and avocado green. I was always drawn to the pictures of pudding and jelly desserts in parfait dishes with whipped cream on top stored in those refrigerators and the Cornish game hens on the skewers in the upper rotisserie ovens! I thought that Cornish game hens must be the ultimate dish that you'd order in an upscale restaurant. And the ads that the Curtiss Candy Co. ran at Halloween featuring Baby Ruth and Butterfinger chocolate bars always caught my eye:
