I Saw It Advertised One Day #24

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!

Do you know who benefits the most from wars?

Kids getting army surplus stuff, obviously!!!

Reader Edo Bosner sent in this awesome add for the Cleveland Institute of Electronics…


Ed’s correct that, generally speaking, ads for places like the CIE are so common as to not be worth featuring, but this one definitely stands out!

I just love the depiction of Santa Claus on this fishing rod ad.


It makes Santa sort of look like a homeless dude, clutching what money he’s begged for the day.

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.
