I just saw the damnedest thing at my LCS.

It was a copy of Thor #216 (Marvel, October 1973) with a Jeweler's advertising insert in the centerfold. That's common enough, but this copy also had something I had never seen before: Between the cover and the interior pages was a signature on cover stock, comprising four pages of advertising that were unique to those pages (not repeated anywhere else in the book).

The ads on those pages appeared to be aimed toward military personnel. I saw no evidence of post-distribution tampering.

Has the existence of comics like this been documented anywhere else?

Could it be an AAFES distro?

Don't know. Were there AAFES comics in 1973?

An issue I already have...

No, I didn't buy it.

Even if I had, I don't have a camera, sorry.
