I believe I can fly!  I believe I can touch the sky! – well, no, not really…


allstar71cropHere’s an ad from All Star Comics #71 that’s truly unique.  Where else but in a comic book can you order your own, do it yourself hover chair!  Seriously, for only $3.95 you could build a floating chair to take to school or work.  All you need is a vacuum cleaner with a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY long extension cord!  Bummer.


You know what, $4 for the mid-1970s is not a low cost, even with a free inventor’s calendar.  I wonder how many instruction manuals they managed to shill to the public before going belly up?


An even better question, did anyone actually build this thing?  And if you did, seriously, why?
