This is my piece for the upcoming Mint Condition a comic book inspired art show at LTD Gallery in Seattle, WA. Show opens this Friday March 30th in conjunction with the Emerald City Comicon. I always loved looking at those mail order ads in comics for all the cool and crazy crap you could get for just a few dollars, this is a homage to that with a bit of a different twist.

:lol: Love it. 

If only comics still had these gimmicks. The prizes they advertised were insane. 
Saw your print at the ToonSeum - this is so cool!

This is freaking awesome!
Just 25 cents for meteor rock? That seems like a steal. But I guess the shipping from Metropolis is where they get you.
Makes sense though. Much of it was synthetically made. I hear they used the recipe from some quirky computer programmer. ;)

(Also, they used to have pink rocks, but for some reason were discontinued.)
The cube is the best thing in this poster! Runner-up is the green power ring.

Thanks for this wonderful picture!

What, no Infinity Gauntlet?! :lmao:

I'd pay for the Cosmic Cube though.

Great style here! Looks like it's right out of 50s or 60s magazine :)

You cashed my check, and I haven't gotten my green power ring yet! I'm starting to get a little angry... What's the hold up?
You might get a red one for your compensation!
