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 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.
