Star Wars Comic 87  

The Ad of the Month: we thought it would be cool to share those all time favorite classic 2600 ads with you. There's a new one each month. The ads are taken from old US Marvel/DC Comics (like the Star Wars comic #87 on the left), and some are from Electronic Games. The ads are scanned, and then enhanced in Adobe's Photoshop to replicate the original look of the art as the artists and designers ment them to be back then. While we have enough ads for another year, feel free to mail your favorites in.

We are now giving you the possibility to find your favorite game's advertisement, by listing all games (and their ads) alphabetically: (tip: use the search button in your browser)
