    And you won't read that book again,
    Because the ending's just too hard to take.

    I always liked these pages in the comics, where part of the page was taken up by a commercial, and the story didn't begin again for a few pages. Growing up with commercial TV, having a pause made sense to my brain. And it built up the suspense for the story. Nowadays, you probably couldn't get away with giving over part of the page to an ad--fandom would be in an uproar over how the artwork was "ruined" by this commercialism. But to me, that break is awesome sauce.

    Actually it was called just NEW FUN--when it began. Not NEW FUN COMICS. This might seem like I'm being picky, but it's important to me to make the distinction. The second ongoing title was called NEW COMICS. They then changed NEW FUN to MORE FUN, so the titles would be distinctive. And after that it became MORE FUN COMICS (on the cover and eventually in the indicia). Then DETECTIVE COMICS was launched, which then inspired the change to NEW ADVENTURE COMICS for NEW COMICS, before it finally settled on ADVENTURE COMICS. And all three titles used the same font for COMICS--which helped to make them identifiable as all being from the same publisher.

    One of the earliest advertisements where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern comics were all advertised on the same page (More Fun Comics #84, October 1942).
