Free Inside! (Additional)

As a sort of extra to the blog posts about comic free gifts that I wrote a few years ago here's a nice cartoon I've just noticed from the 1960 edition of the Daily Sketch Cartoon Book. I suppose free gifts in comics were starting to increase at that time and with ads for them appearing in newspapers (and on TV) they'd be ideal for comment. Especially when you can tie it in with the space race.

The cartoon is by Harry Hargreaves (1922 - 2004). More info about the artist here:
