I Saw It Advertised One Day #29

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.

Today is a special installment, just for the ladies in the audience!

Enjoy!

Kirk Teeters correctly noted that it is weird seeing corset ads in 1960s Marvel comic. I guess their demographics really WERE broad (the comic was Linda Carter, Student Nurse)…

Edo Bosner sent in this interesting 1980 ad for women to gain weight…

Andrew Polinsky sent in this super duper bizarre ad from a 1985 Charlton comic…


I agree, Andrew, I don’t quite know what the drawing is, either!

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.
