Looking for used Nintendo games comic ad.

by Anapan Mon Mar 22, 2010 2:47 am

I used to have a lot of old comics and I remember this one company was selling used NES games. The ad I'm looking for was in some digest comics, possibly Archie, printed on cheap glossy paper with very fine print. It had over 60-100 games listed on the tiny page, many were obscure titles that I'd never heard of like Fire&Ice, Arctic, and Castelian. I think it had a few common Genesis and SNES games too. I'd love to see it again, so if any of you with comics remember what I'm talking about, I'd really appreciate it if you could hunt it down and scan it.

I did a bunch of Googling, and found some other ads I remember from a slightly earlier era.

I have an Archie digest comic from 1990, and it has quite a few of those gaming ads. The NES, Genesis and Atari were frequently mentioned. I sometimes look at the ads now and then and laugh at how old they are :lol:

I'll see if I can scan some of them this weekend... and hopefully start on scanning the massive amount of Nintendo Power stuff I have! :roll:
