"Luthor's reign as President was a travesty. He traded arms with Apokolips. Falsely accused Superman of trying to destroy Earth. Became addicted to the super-steroid Venom. Disgraceful. I will uphold the honor of the presidency." - Trump on Luthor.

Is it just me, or does this cover look like

Spoiler:
a giant extended middle finger?

I'm sure that's on purpose. Don't know anything about the book, but I bet it makes sense somehow.

Yeah, I don't know the series either, and I didn't recognize any subliminal messages in the other covers so I wasn't sure.

That isn't subliminal or even all that subtle. That's the first thing most would think of when looking at that cover.

Some recent Elric conversation reminded me of a story I read decades ago. I think it was this Marvel Graphic Novel (I picked up a number of those at the time), now available from Titan.

I just learned that Russ Heath of DC war comics fame did some of these old ads. I loved the ads and wanted the toys, but I'm sure they were garbage.

^^ Love that Swamp cover too.

^ I ordered those! So disappointing to this 12 year old; just thin plastic stand-ups, all solid colors iirc.

Can't be as disappointing as those x-ray glasses or that giant space ship looking fort thing. Or Sea Monkeys. Talk about false advertising...

They still make Grit; more of a monthly magazine sold in farm supply stores iirc.
