Great cover by Infantino and Anderson, who as always hit it out of the park. The inside story however is by Bob Kane's studio and fails to do justice to a lively and fun Bob Kanigher script.
The one ad in the book that was exciting was found on the inside front cover: The Top TV Comic Stars Come From DC -- The House of Hits!
And look at that list of TV-bound heroes at the bottom of the page! It's Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Plastic Man and Metamorpho! In the end only Aquaman and The Flash (in shorts featuring him solo and as part of the Justice League as part of Aquaman's show) made it to the screen in the 60s. But I was looking for Metamorpho, Plas and Wonder Woman for years after this ad ran. The folks at DC wouldn't lie to the kids would they?
The house ad below reveals a sad truth: When you write about Squaresville, even in the 60s, you're the one living there:
I'll let these next ads from "None-Can-Comparesville" speak for themselves. I'm speechless.
As Ben Grimm surely said in that very month, "Fascinatin'!"
Here's a bonus look at the Justice League cartoon from 1967:
