Money-Saving for British Spies -- hmmm?
The bottom half of the page is DC's standard-at-the-time subscription ad. If you subscribed to a year's worth, you got ten 12-cent comics for $1. That's a fine deal, but I always bought MY comics from a greasy guy in an alley. Not really, it was the local grocery store.
The first problem is in the way they arrive, dropping from the sky like the murdered skydiver in last night's CSI: Miami. Good news? They land in water. Bad news? It's December water. Also, our well-intentioned loudmouth (Bob Hope, not your humble blogger) starts shouting so loud that General Washington immediately decides that they must be British spies.
More of Part 3, "A Ridiculous St Nick-ulous," in a few days.
