What a difference a year makes. Last week I posted the lead-in ad for the original Secret Wars from 1984. It was a pretty epic grouping of heroes changing into presumed danger. For the penultimate issue of Secret Wars II, though, you get some shrunk-down images, basic text and one of the ugliest yellow backgrounds of all time. It’s especially interesting because that cover to Secret Wars II #8 is actually pretty rad and would have made a solid ad. Ah well. Scanned from the 1985 Punisher miniseries issue #2.
