Master Comics Flyer - 1940

New Ad! This amazing promo piece from 1940 was sent by Fawcett Comics to retailers promoting their brand-new over-sized series Master Comics.

The photo is courtesy Treasury Friend Nicholas Yutko, who said this: It was taken on 9/10/06 when we attended a Diamond Retailer Seminar and visited the GEM Museum for the first time. [It] was hanging in the hallway of the museum with a number of other retail sales pieces from the early days of comics.

What a find! Its amazing to me that a throwaway item like this has survived, and I'm so glad Nicolas took a shot of it so I could show it off here. Thanks Nicholas!
