How to sell a comic book on television

Only the hottest heroines get the DC seal of approval. “These ain’t your daddy’s comic books, fanboy!” so says Lobo.

And you don’t eff around with Lobo. You can’t kill him and he’s the last of his kind – after committing violent genocide of his race . (Sort of like Dr. Who when you think about it….)

Unfortunately, this spot won’t get into any hall of fame for best local TV ads, but it does the job, and then some.

We aren’t sure when it ran originally for Comics on Parade (sometime in the early 90s?), a comic store in Metairie, Louisiana – we think.

Fast forward a few decades, and we get the following ad for Vertigo Comics, which aired on BBC America in 2010.

Still playing up the sex and danger.
