During a recent visit home, I spent a little time looking through some of my old comic books and found that the ads stood out to me in particular. They kind of serve as mini time capsules for what was being sold/promoted in the 80's and 90's. Some items I remember vaguely, others I remember well, and others I flat out straight up didn't know existed and question as to how they ever did. From a design perspective, it's also fascinating to see how things were advertised to young people back then (lot of exclamation points, images with explosions, and, in some cases, tons of text). If you'd like to take a look, I've scanned and uploaded about 200 images of ads and placed them below. Enjoy!
