Advertisements in comics are vanishing

According to this, both Marvel and DC are running less and less outside advertisements in the pages of their pamphlets, and those that do appear are mostly in-house ads. A good guess why can be that, as the economy declines and people find their prices (3 or 4 dollars) too high for consideration, less people are likely to buy products through readership, and thus, it becomes a far less lucrative way for even movie studios and game developers to advertise their products.

And Marvel and DC have only their alienating storytelling to blame for all this too.

I'm surprised. They could be running ads for Barry-O. It'd be tax-deductible too.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
