We continue a MONTH of I Saw It Advertised One Day! Each day this January you’ll get a piece looking at advertisements in comic books over the decades that amused me for whatever reason. In each installment, we’ll take a look at three ads!
Here is an archive of all installments of this feature.
Now I loves me some Barbara Slate. I think she’s a great comic book creator.
That said, the ads for her 1980s DC series, Angel Love, were ridiculously goofy.
A 1969 ad for marbles would be like a 2011 ad for POGs.
I love the father in this Daisy BB gun ad. “Woah, woah, I don’t want him watching TV! I better get him a gun!”
That’s all for this installment! If you can think of some goofy comic book ads you’d like to see me feature here, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not make suggestions in the comment section, so that they can still be a surprise for future readers! In fact, I think I’ll just delete comments that contain future suggestions.
