Ads in Comics

No, I’m not talking about those full page ads that interrupt the stories. I’m talking about this story from Newsarama, where they reveal that Marvel and DC are going to be sticking all kinds of product placement stuff into their comics.

Ads in comics is one reason why I wait for the trade most of the time. And now the ads are going to be there no matter what.

Some people think it’s cool that there will be “real world” brands in the comics, but I don’t care about that. It’s just jarring to be reading a story and humming along and then suddenly — BAM! — you’ve got a Nike swoosh staring at you from someone’s t-shirt. I mean, jeez, DC is doing a whole comic book based on a guy’s car, now…and it isn’t even a cool car!
