On a completely unrelated note...

After working on these Wonky Ads, I have a whole new appreciation for Tom Sutton's work on the original ads, especially when it comes to the character design! I think most people tend to prefer Norm Saunders style, which I can appreciate since he was such an amazing painter. But Sutton had some real chops as an illustrator and I think we sometimes forget that iconic characters such as Ajerx and Hurtz Tomatoes are actually his creations. No doubt, Norm took them to a whole new level, but I think a lot of the second series titles would've had a completely different flavor had it not been for Sutton. Anyway, just wanted to give props to one of the Wacky founding fathers!


An excellent point!

And the set looks beautiful and maybe a little too purchasable!

Hey Neil, if I recall there was a little something different about each of those images?

For the past few months I haven't been INTO the hobby as I normally am but this set provided needed revitalization after seeing one of the gags.

Just for Fun...

Here's some unofficial binder pages I put together for the Wonky Ad set. These are suitable to print on your home printer and are designed for standard 3/4" 3-ring note books. I've attached the front panel and the spine here, but I'll wait to post the back to avoid any spoilers.

Enjoy and Happy Collecting!

Neil

I'm always curious how many unique buyers that number includes.  I'm sure there are a lot of people who bought 10 or more sets.

Cool! Those July sets should be soon as well. Usually a few days after the newest set shows up on Topps.

I guess the Ad sets were already printed and assembled because there are sketches.

A shipping notice at 4:38pm is always a welcome treat to start the weekend.

Anyone else get the always welcoming "shipment exception" on their tracking adding three additional days to shipment?

Not here - just checked, and mine are already in Queens so I should have them tomorrow.

ugh. not when you pay extra for fast shipping. the package just sits around for two days before going anywhere.
this is probably the 5th or 6th straight Wacky shipment on a Friday in a row. It's clearly intentional.

I agree.  I fully expect that my July sets will not ship until this Friday.  But, if I don't pay for special shipping, my Wackys often go on an odyssey to get from Florida to New York, and then there is the risk that they will never arrive.

Yep, the infamous 3 day ďovernightĒ shipping.
