I Saw It Advertised One Day #9

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.


What makes this ad hilarious is the notion of anyone voluntarily spending time with Rick Barry.


I sure bet that the readership of mid-60s Marvel Comics was THE prime audience for accordion sales.


I figure it was only a matter of time before I shared this mid-60s “nuclear sub” ad with y’all, so it might as well be now!


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.
