Cheaper than a doctor bill!

Wow, no Pull List this week, and then no WTF Wednesday? What's going on here at the Post, anyway?!?

Eh, slackin', mostly.

But to make up for it, I give you this pair of ads from 1983 promoting Power Man and Iron Fist, which are obviously awesome! Both ads manage to be funny and sum up the characters really well, not to mention they're rockin' classic Bill Sienkiewicz art. You have to give credit to whatever unnamed shlub in the Marvel marketing department came up with the idea of running the ads in separate, consecutive issues — it was a cute and clever way to reward regular readers with an old-fashioned "a-ha!" moment.

Continuity in house-ads — exactly the crazy-great kind of thing that made me love comics in the first place.
