I Saw It Advertised One Day #12

by  in Comic News Comment

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.

Enjoy!

If you asked me where the best place would be to get people to buy land in New Mexico, I would tell you “in a comic book ad!” Luckily, someone else in 1966 agreed with me!


Also, I am sure that this is a totally, completely legit deal and not at all a scam.

Not at all.

These early 90s 3 Musketeers ads were weeeeeeeeeeird…


Anyone know who did the art for them?

What I like about this ad is that maybe this really WAS some revolutionary thing (I doubt it, but maybe) but even if it WAS…


A. Why are you advertising in a 1967 comic book?

and

B. Why is your ad practically impossible to understand?

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 bcronin@comicbookresources.com. 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.
