Walcott’s Pain Annihilator, 1867
“Rezinotrest [Soviet rubber-industry trust] is your protector from rain and slush. Without galoshes Europe is bound to sit and weep.”
Who know Vladimir Mayakovsky wrote ads for galoshes? Threatening and imperious ads for galoshes. I wrote a bit about it.
Of course, the best part is that Marvel and DC, the two biggest American comic companies, are still desperately trying to catch up to Archie. Keep reaching for the stars, guys! One day you’ll get there!
