When I was a kid I used to real really old comics, my friends older brother used to collect all old Marvel Comics. I used to love reading them, and seeing all the adverts. As a Brit all this stuff seemed really exotic to me, American Candy, Toys and the weirdest things you could send for like sea monkeys, spy cameras, giant balloons, hypnotic coins and of course X Ray Specs. I always thought “when I’m older and get a job, I’m going to buy this cool stuff. I never did.
As I grew older I realised a guy who used x-ray glasses to look at girls and a hypno coin to get them interested isn’t someone I wanted to be! (I also heard that x-ray glasses didn’t work!)
