I Saw It Advertised One Day #13

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!

The above ad SHOULD read “There’s A New Kind of Superman Coming…three years after this ad comes out, and it will last less than a year!”

I wonder what took them so long to get from this ad to the O’Neil Superman actually coming out?

It is hard to fully comprehend just how ridiculous it is to imagine someone wanting to spend $14.99 in 1986 money on a watch that is a little car with a digital watch underneath it.

What in the world is this?!

Did Monogram just totally run out of cars to make models of??!

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.
