Christmas Miz

Wednesday Advertising Day.

Not much time today, so I am keeping it short with a film ad I missed when I did a couple of those earlier this year (see the tag). Unrelated to the others, this is an ad for a movie adaptation from the Victor Hugo book (yes, it was a book once). To that, I have added two ads that I strongly suspect to have been done by Dik Brown, who at that point had alredy started Hi and Lois with Mort Walker.

Nice artwork on this ad, with a guest shot by an Alex Raymond woman in the last panel (Pagan Lee?)

When I was a lad, totally ignorant of French, I pronounced this title as "Less Miserables (MIZ-er-a-bulls)" and figured it had something to do with people who weren't as unhappy as others. I didn't read the book because it was much too fat and I'd rather have been drawing comics.

The figure placement on all panels is quite good, though. It should be by an accomplished artist (which doesn't ssay he would be above a little swipe now and then}.
