Highlighting House Ads: Danger Trail #2

You've heard the phrase 'A Pictures Says a Thousands Words', right? Well, a picture accompanied by a thousands words must be even better. Actually, I really like this ad because it serves as such great snapshot of the 1950s. Like the James Bond films of the 60s, this series served as a sort of travelogue for passportless readers, taking them from London to Argentina. This must certainly contain one of the small handful of US comic book stories to take place in Trinidad. I have no idea why this series didn't catch on as the stories were fun, the artwork was great and ,with these ads, they were really doing their best to sell kids on the exciting international adventures contained within.
