I thought I’d try an issue of The Mighty Avengers, #24 to be precise. The cover looks like this:
Typical superhero comic, right? I was trying to follow along — too many characters doing nothing but talking — when I turned a page and was astounded to see this:
Either Marvel’s desperate for ad money, or they’ve got a REALLY good sales team, or someone behind “MyPrincessAcademy.com” has no idea what publications their ads are being placed in, because those audiences don’t match at all. Threw me right out of the comic, too, from surprise.
That wasn’t the only weird placement. Later in that same issue, there’s an ad that looks to me like what happens when someone gets the color settings wrong on the computer. Spider-Man and Iron Man are a kind of mustard yellow, and the whole page blurs into muddy turquoise.
