When I saw the " Hey Kids, Want to Counterfeit Money?" headline, I just had to read this article. -Editor
This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of pieces looking at advertisements in comic books over the decades that
amused me for whatever reason. Today we look at a tool for kids to make their own money.
I imagine that the gag is that you have a pre-loaded bill and then you put a blank piece of paper and “roll” the blank piece of paper into the
dollar bill. But I’m sure hundreds of would-be counterfeiters sent in their hard-earned cash to see if it was something better!
The ad is from the inside cover of 1977’s Incredible Hulk #214. Here's the complete array of offerings. The Magic Rocks,
Exploding Pen and X-Ray Goggles are classics. -Editor
