Please note the Personal Appearance in the fine print.















Yeah, due to some dire circumstances that really don’t need to be gotten into here, I didn’t get to see Star Wars — yes, Star Wars, save it, New Hopers — until the ’78 re-release at the old Hastings Drive-In. (Had the comics, had the trading cards, had the t-shirt, had the action-figures, but no movie.) So, in the spirit of Johnny-Come-Lately, I’ll present the second-run ads first. This latest batch also marks my 500th post. On the old site, after four years of posting, I didn’t even come close to that amount so I must be doing something right. Hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed digging them up and posting ’em, folks. Stay tuned. Lots more to come.
