No Word On X-Ray Glasses, But Comic Book Ad Submarine Didnt' Suck

Like everyone else, I wanted sea monkeys and x-ray goggles. Unlike one guy, though, I was never able to convince my parents to pony up for the crap advertised in comic books.

Now it turns out, the $6.98 Polaris Nuclear Sub may not have been half bad after all. The "foil-coated space rocket" still wins, though.

BoingBoing's got a link to Ben Smith's scans of old comic book ads and to Clayton and his 1967 sub. [boingboing]
