Aquaman #31 Ad - 1967

Another spiffy ad by Ira Schnapp (I should really do a theme week for these ads sometime), where he has to jam a lot of copy (including the goofily-named criminal organization O.G.R.E.--twice!) in a small space. But, somehow, it all works. "See them pull it off", indeed.

It was handy having two distinct Aquaman logos to use--the classic one, and then one that could fit into a tinier space since it contained no curve. Couldn't have done that with Superman!

Actually, I always rather liked OGRE. They were pretty goofy in their original incarnation, but renvisioned as an international cartel set on controlling the commerce and exploitation of the oceans they made perfect foes for Aquaman. Plus...that's an awesome cover right there.
