Recently, Marvel Comics stopped providing weekly previews of their Facsimile Edition comics, after previously providing them for months. No reason was given, but we have a guess: it’s because one of the best draws of these reprints is seeing the classic ads reprinted in their original glory, and that’s what we were focusing on in […]
Over the weekend, we previewed a few of the classic comic book ads in Marvel’s facsimile edition reprint of Giant-Size X-Men #1, but that’s not the only classic comic getting reprinted this week with all of the great comic book ads included just as they originally appeared. Coinciding with the launch of the highly anticipated […]
It’s time for another Marvel Facsimile Edition this week, as Marvel reprints Giant-Size X-Men #1 in all its original glory. And don’t get us wrong – this is probably one of the greatest and most important comic books ever published. But it’s not necessarily what’s in the story pages that interests us most about these […]
We’re all familiar by now with the awesomeness of Marvel’s facsimile edition reprints. And we all know by now what the best part is. No, it’s not the timeless classic storytelling that made the Marvel Universe what it is today. No, it’s not the chance to read classic comics as they were originally intended but […]
Earlier last year, Bleeding Cool was the first to tell you that DC Comics would be getting the infamous half page Twix ads. And so it came to pass. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo were even able to mock the addition to their pages in Batman. Then Marvel had a go with their Deadpool covers... Well […]

Would it have looked like this? Just a thought.
Looks like Chris Burnham got his DC comp copies of upcoming titles, including those ads running on the same page as the comic books that we’d talked about. And appropriately enough they’re for Twix… Though Burnham is more concerned with the ad quallity rather than the placement and media buying… TO BE CLEAR, I’m more […]
With all those black type words… And all that blank white space… Has there ever been a more tempting target in comic book publishing… For a hackable ad campaign… Where people switch everything around, create their new images and text… In order to mock the original? Not that I can think of. Although I’m not […]

We all know women are the weaker sex. Which means, when they are confronted with a large burger, such as the type that Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s serve, that they have no other choices but to put the burger down, crawl into a corner and cry or be lucky enough to have a shape shifting […]
Equip yourself. Watch these now and you'll be a prize bluffer by kick-off.
Imagine a version of Joss Whedon's Avengers movie where there was a lot more product placement to worry about than, say, that conspicuously framed and lingering shot of Farmer's Insurance.
A new day, a new ad from Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow…. seriously, this is how I get all my American political news these days. Dear Super Citizens, It’s Jon again. I want to let you know that I have not let this Super PAC thing go to my head, beyond the bejeweled crown […]
Christopher Lloyd has now played Doctor Emmet Brown in the three Back to the Future feature films, one theme park ride, a five-part videogame and some commercials for an Argentinian electricals store. Anything I’m missing from that list? Maybe a Saturday Night Live sketch or something? Robot Chicken? Here is the main commercial for the […]
