Manic Monday--Whatever It Is, Marvel's Against it!

A house ad in Punisher Annual #2 (1990):

Yeah, take that, Billy Joel!! "We DID start the fire!!" Take your #1 song and shove it!!

Later in the same issue:

Yeah, take that, Michael Landon!! This is so not your TV show!!

Seriously, the Marvel ad strategy for 1990 seemed to be "Hey, you know that pop culture thing from 1989? Well, we're completely the opposite!!"

I'm now eagerly searching for the imaginative Marvel ads that declare they're not Milli Vanilli or "You know the Cosby Show--well, we ain't that!!"
