I Saw It Advertised One Day #8

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!

I just love the idea of some father reading the back cover of this comic book and saying, “Hmmm…yes, son, this makes a lot of sense. Let me put down my pipe and order one for you today!”

I think it would be hilarious if it turns out that hypnocoins actually worked.

This satellite toy is pretty normal, actually.

I just thought it was funny how they had to sort of OVER sell it.


It’s a cool toy, you don’t need to throw in stuff like “it’s good for exercise!” in there!

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.
