The advertisements in Sandman Overture #1 did seem to be rather oppressive. Repeated double page spread for more Sandman books or more books you might like if you liked Sandman, even an inner cover page ad with a galactic background that kinda merged with that of Sandman Overture page one in a rather annoying fashion.
But advertising is what it is, and here's a phone booth in Manhattan, close to Midtown Comics. Not sure if people still use phone booths, but if they do, they'll get a faceful of Sandman when they try to make a call.
I wonder how long these posters will last before they get grabbed?
