    Inspired by J. L. Warner's Disney Adventures threads, I've decided to start an ad where you post print advertisements from magazines, comic books, newspapers and the sort, old and new.

    NOTE: Provide the name and print date of the source publication.

    Here are some to start with:

    Mortal Kombat "Mortal Monday" ad
    "Spider Man Classics" #6, September 1993.

    DuckTales/Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers ad
    "Mickey Mouse Adventures" #3, August 1990
    [​IMG]


    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me ad
    New York Daily News, June 12, 1999
    [​IMG]


    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut ad
    New York Daily News, July 19, 1999
    [​IMG]


    Toy Story 2 "Y2K" ad
    New York Daily News, December 31, 1999
    [​IMG]\


    Fantasia 2000: The IMAX Experience ad
    New York Daily News, December 31, 1999
    [​IMG]


    And to honor its re-release in theaters today...

    Monsters, Inc. ad
    New York Daily News, November 13, 2001
    [​IMG]

    These and other ads are seen on my Flickr photostream

    So get out those old magazines and papers are start scanning!

    Well besides that here's the Ads section of Retronaut.

    Yeah, I don't have a scanner or room for one (hand held scanner... just no) if I did I have about decade and a half worth of PC Gamer ads to scan and plus I would have already posted a history of Duke Nukem Forever magazine stories.

    "To us. 'dubba dubba' is our credo, our rallying cry....and the way we answer the phone."

    They were not kidding. I heard some radio DJs kept calling the WB offices over and over just to hear the receptionist go, "Dubba Dubba Dubba Dubba WB, can I help you?" They'd laugh their heads off and do it again.
