WIZBANG! Pet Demon

(2B pencil on a 139mm x 87mm postcard)

Even pets were not immune to comic-book ads and there were quite a few different ones, whether it was the now infamous sea monkeys, or even squirrel monkeys (which were a real con, because you actually did get nothing for your money). As with other items that were advertised, they were sold as something wonderful and exotic, when they were really very mundane (sea monkeys were just brine shrimp).
With these Wizbang ads, I decided to reference them with an advert selling everything you could possibly need to grow your own little pet demon. A strange DIY kit that would probably sell well if it was advertised.
