S.M.A.S.H. Squad and Tight Grips

Stay alert on the high seas and in port with this 11 x 17 inch digital print!

This print is part of our S.M.A.S.H. Squad series, which highlights the Stop Monsters And Save Humanity Squad that started after World War II as a way for the government to combat monsters, whether they be man-made, otherworldly, or extraterrestrial.

Comes with this description:

You would be hard-pressed in the 1940s to find a schoolchild or sea-faring man not familiar with the slogan “Tight Grips Sink Ships,” a reference to the ongoing problem of cargo and passenger ships being sunk by increasing number of hellish sea-beasts. With this awareness campaign, as well as the submarine monster hunters, the SMASH Squad was slowly able to beat back the tentacled menace to acceptable levels.
