The 13 GREATEST COMICS ADS of All Time!

Now that everyone’s whipped into an (in)appropriate frenzy over the Twix ad, I hereby bring you the 13 BEST ADS EVER (with a little help from the great Ann Nocenti and friends).

UPDATED 1/26/17: The funny thing about writing about comics daily for a few years — often many times a day — is that sometimes you forget what you’ve written. As it happens, I stumbled upon this quite accidentally and decided to share it again just for the fun of it. The “controversy” I’m referencing is a couple years old. But the ads? They’re timeless. Dig it.

If you’re just joining us, read this. Get into a high state of dudgeon, make your position known on social media, and come back for this unassailable list of brilliant comic-book ads:
