U.S. Government Surplus - Direct by mail! - Classic Comic Book Ads  

Click for smaller version

I have a friend that this catalogue would have been one he'd be subscribed to since birth. Joe, for that is his name, has a fondness for army surplus supplies and I know that it wouldn't have just been steel helmets, parachutes or giant balloons he'd be into, but the more exotic items like jeeps and "airplanes".

Oh where would we be without the joys of army surplus? I'm sure that after the events of S11 it'll be sometime before ads like this one are published in comic books and I'd love to know what the equivalent ad in a mercenary trade magazine would feature.
