Here's a really fun ad from Nyoka, the Jungle Girl #6 from 1947. Mary Marvel faces the same problems as any teenage girl in post-war America; trying to get a new dress for Easter for under $3.00. I can hardly imagine solving that problem, as I'm certain I paid twice that amount to have some pants dry cleaned for church this past Easter Sunday. Mary flies off to see Madame Adele for assistance. I was kind of hoping that Madame Adele would turn out to be the Madame Xanadu of the Fawcettverse, but she's only a seamstress. I like how the text explains how the 'cute puff sleeves' will make it perfect for Easter and Sunday School. I also noted that Marvel Marvel Enterprises Inc. seemed to be a fully distinct corporate entity. I'd like to know what else they tried to sell to young readers. They just don't make them like this anymore, folks. Too bad.
