Covers and Ads

Here's some more cool stuff from the Brazilian Bugs Bunny comic book I blogged about here.

The front cover. In Brazil, Bugs Bunny is known as "Pernalonga":

The inside front cover, the text of which reads as follows:

Headline: “Guess what I have in my hands!” 

Text below Bugs Bunny: “This month, let’s have some real fun with ton of games and pastimes that I invented! We’ll connect the dots, find mistakes, color drawings, and dress up dolls. Let’s have fun with the Easter Games! Come play with me!”  

Text inside blue “ka-boom” graphic: Available at all newsstands 

Title of activity book (featured at the bottom of the ad): Bugs Bunny’s Games and Pastimes 

An ad for a Jetsons comic book, the text of which reads as follows: 

Headline: # 2 Now on Sale! 

Text below cover: In this edition, besides the Jetsons’ space age adventures, you’ll read: 
Pixie, Dixie and Mr. Jinks * Quick Draw McGraw and Baba Looey * Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy 

Look for it in the newsstands 

Finally, an ad for a Disney activity book, the text of which reads as follows: 

Headline: Shall we play Sherlock? 

Main Text: First, go to your nearest newsstand and look for a magazine with an illustration just like this one on the cover. Then, grab your colored pencils, glue, and a pair of scissors, and get to work! We'll find clues and catch those villains! We’ll make our own disguises! And assemble jigsaw puzzles! And take fingerprints! We’ll even decode secret messages! 

Let’s read, color, cut out, and play with…

The Junior Detectives
