There was comic books on the tee-vee!
So during my dinner break at work I'm watching X-Play on G4 (don't laugh - it's the one watchable show on the whole network; plus, Morgan Webb is totally on my list), and a commercial comes on for a new horror manga title from Viz, something called "Monster." I couldn't believe it! Sure, the commercial seemed like it was made on the cheap, and it didn't make want to run out and buy the book, but still... a comic book commercial on actual television! I haven't seen such a thing in about 20 years. So while I may not exactly be the target audience, it's nice to think that someone out there might be as excited by this commercial as I was by those old G.I. Joe comic ads back in the day.
