SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
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.
Oh, you poor, poor bastards.
You’ve never had the joy of having your home turned into an indoor firing range!!!
Thanks, Daisy, you’re the best!!
I won’t lie, these watches look super cool.
But what kind of BS is paying $25 for a tiny watch (look! That’s ACTUAL size!!!) in 1977?!? And the smaller one is “only” $20?!?! That’s crazy!!!
I will admit, it is sort of interesting to see how they worked in a plot about “brands” to segue into talking about Lee Brand Jeans.
But doesn’t the idea of a brand that just adds to an X to make a double diamond sort of not make sense? If you’re that careful, why not just brand your double diamond OVER the X? Seems to be a lot simpler.
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 email@example.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.
