I Saw It Advertised One Day #22

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.


I really don’t get the appeal of having intentionally fake reviews of a video game.

I get the idea of treating the release of the video game like the release of a film, but why not then just get ACTUAL reviews of the game?

You have to almost admire how the company just flat out tells you that this is almost certainly going to be a bad deal.

You pay $3.33 and we guarantee you that you get a minimum “catalog value” of $4.50!!

What a bargain!!!!

So with that last ad in mind, let me just bask in the actual NON-SCAM-osity of this Scripto giveaway.

GASP! A giveaway that is just a…giveaway?!?! How can this be?!!?

Good on you, Scripto!

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 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.
