Retro Nest Comic – November 8, 2012

As promised… here is one of my oldies but “goodies” to bide your time while you wait for my new Thursday comic to be posted on Friday…

I obviously had to go back to my first year of drawing these for my inaugural retro comic entry, which was the archaic time of 2012.  About half of them are garbage, but there are also a lot of really quirky comics in that first batch that I still love today.  Here’s one of my favorites that I haven’t managed to gratuitously repost/link to that most, if not all of you have probably never seen before.  This was Comic #28

For those who didn’t pay attention to commercial breaks in the 80’s, of course this is the ad being referenced

It’s weird to see a comic without all those goofy recurring gags I throw in them now, isn’t it?  Also, I’m not sure if my drawing style now is better or worse than it used to be.  One thing’s for sure, I had a hell of a lot better scanner when I started doing this than the piece of shit I’m using now…

    Thank you for the repost. I now can comment without it being a necrocomment! Your sense of humor is still fresh…no pun intended…or is it? The additional references are hilarious but even without, your sense of humor is spit out water funny.

    That commercial made for some uncomfortable talks around the world, that’s for sure. The answer I got ruined my innocence forever…

    Urk. What a question!
    I hope someone locates Buster.

    I like the bold colors on this comic. Good topic, too. Those commercials were the worst.

    • The bold colors may be partly due to the superior scanner I had… the black lines stand out more and I think they make the color pop off the page better. I wish it hadn’t gone on the fritz… it was really good at printing photo quality stuff as well.

  6. I used to LOVE those ads. We used to imitate them all the time. Ah, the great days of Madison Avenue!

    • I miss the days when they didn’t try so hard to create something memorable and stupid stuff like this became legendary in pop culture. Every great advertising icon was born out of accidental inspiration, not the forced craziness you see on Super Bowl Sunday nowadays…

  7. I remember those ads…..we’ve come a long way since then with “female-directed-ads” haven’t we….now we have tampons, cramp-talk, bra bulge, among other things – somewhere in a dark warehouse there are boxes piled to the ceiling containing douche equipment.

    • I saw something at work this morning that I’d never heard of before called the Diva Cup. It is….. literally, a plastic cup. For menstruation. I really don’t want to know how it works, and I hope there isn’t a commercial for it!!!!

      • SADLY there is a commercial for it – I saw it the other day and was rather SPEECHLESS…….I don’t even want to know what could be next after that……..EEEEEEEEEK!

    Too funny! I always thought it would be terrible to be the actress who plays the girl who is embarrassed by the smell from her not so fresh feeling.
