As was the case with many
magazines up through about the 1970's, comics reflecting the theme of the publication
was often found within the pages of each issue. This 1960 edition of American
Modeler magazine is a good example. It contained no fewer than six model aviation
themed comics, one related to a particular advertisement for the Fox Glo-Master
Battery and Plug, and five stand-alone comics. The Table of Contents (TOC) page
often had a "silent" comic with no dialog or caption. In fact the comic that spanned
both pages 42 and 43 is like typical TOC comic. The control line combat scenario
on page 49 reminds me of something you'd see on the old
BattleBots show (which I haven't seen in many
years, but is evidently still running). Anyway, enjoy them all!
