Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
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 had way too much fun reading this ad in a brusque fashion.
“Would you like a fun new car?”
“Would you like a new hot car?”
“It doesn’t matter, we have them both!”
Just imagine J. Jonah Jameson reading those lines really fast.
Those poor crabs…
I love that Batman and Superman are presenting the coupon to you, and Wonder Woman is just there, can’t even get a name check!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
