I Saw It Advertised One Day - "Hey Ladies, Do You Want to Know How to Get a Job and Not Lose It?"

This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at advertisements in comic books over the decades that amused me for whatever reason. Here is an archive of all installments of this feature.

That's just so delightfully patronizing.

If you have a suggestion for an ad for a future edition, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com!
