1973 - ASM #118 - Come on Down to Adolf's!

Merry Christmas everyone! Have we got a holiday entry for you!

Hindsight is 20/20, and oftentimes decisions and affiliations we choose at the time become unpopular or embarrassing when viewed from the lens of history.

That being said, this ad ran in 1973, 28 years after World War II ended...


That's right, at Adolf's in Minneapolis, you can get:

Reproduction German Helmet in the following colors:
Black, Chrome, Candy Apple (!), and Metal Flake!


INCLUDES LINER & SWASTIKA DECALS!

Apparently, Adolf's address, 2607 Hennepin(g) Ave. So. Minneapolis, Minnesota is now home to Inside Out Salon, a well-reviewed beauty shop. I wonder if they know who'd occupied it before.

Appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #118, March 1973.

The Adolf's ad ran in Luke Cage, Power Man #21 (October 1974.)

Yes a comic book about a Black super-hero; presented by Stan Lee--a Jewish man--; running an ad about Nazi paraphernalia. Okay...
