Photo of comic book Polaris submarine


Yesterday I ran a scan of a comic book ad for a toy Polaris Sub. As a comic book reading kid in the 70s, I must've seen the ad hundreds of times.

I've always wondered what they really looked like, and today, Clayton kindly emailed me a remarkable photo of himself in one from 1967. The submarine looks a lot cooler than I thought it would!

He says: "The submarine is long gone but proof of its fabulousness remains.

"Lawnmower off the starboard bow! Submerge to periscope depth!"
