Portion Of A 1990 Hearst Corporation Magazine Ad

By John Rose

I enjoy finding advertisements from the past that feature Barney Google and/or Snuffy Smith.  I have written previous blog entries about vintage newspaper advertisements and magazine advertisements featuring both characters which you can find here and here.  But I recently came across part of another beautiful magazine advertisement that I think you will enjoy, as well.  I know I did!  The portion of the ad featured was for The Hearst Corporation and I believe it ran circa 1990.  It features a beautiful drawing of many wonderful King Features characters including Snuffy Smith.  I think it is so well done!  Unfortunately, it is only the right half of the ad.  I would love to see the left half of the ad, too.  If you know what the left half looks like please let me know!
