Helvetica 2:14

Only the truly devout will receive their just reward of the IBM Selectric II.

From Comics on Parade #9 (December 1938).


  1. What do they mean, "Just like a real typewiter"? I'll bet you get a bunch of dead brine shrimp back in the mail.

  2. I read that as "See the Batman at your local Toy Department". That would put the fear into those lousy Mall Santas and filthy Easter Bunnies.

  3. I can't help but think of Schroeder from "Peanuts", playing concertos on a toy piano. It is the power of his imagination that allows him to surpass any feats he could accomplish on a genuine piano, and it is the strength of his passion that ensures his friends can perceive what his imagination can encompass. Also, after 50 years, his testicles have yet to descend. That's gotta figure into the equation somehow too.
