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 love how this 1950s scam is geared towards women instead of boys…
I mean, who is this geared towards?
I think a few comic book artists must have seen this 1960s ad…
It’s interesting to see how Flash was sold when he first got his series after his Showcase intro…
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.
