You’re killing me Red Hood. While I know it’s a silly and impossible thought to try to obtain every promo comic, your links are putting a hurting in my wish list $ totals.

That site is pretty good about finding obscure stuff like that. Some of these go for big bucks but it's good to keep them on a checklist just to see if they can be found in dollar bins or flea markets.

I still instinctually glance at cereal box covers and other possible places for promo comics, but haven’t seen anything new in quite awhile. Figured I’d bump this just in case anyone else had any news.

McDonalds is having a Teen Titans Go Happy Meal promo going on in which you get an art set with each order. The art set is actually a one page comic on one side and a Teen Titans poster in the other. The comic/page is about 11x18

I randomly put a happy meal in my McDonald’s app cart the other day, testing some things, and noticed the Teen Titans Go toy. Haven’t opened it yet, but now I guess I need to get all 5 (or however many it is).

I should probably get some for my son. He loves that show.

Bad news and good news

Apparently today was the day McDonald’s changed over Happy Meal promotions, the toys are now Lilo and Stitch stuff. But I asked at my local store and they still had some of the Titans ones in the basement. So I was able to complete the collection of all 8. Learned you can buy the toys separately for like $1.25 each.

Re: Promotional Comics - cereal boxes, etc

I know it's not the point of the thread, but Lilo & Stitch? That seems super random. Is there something Lilo & Stitch related coming up to tie-in with?

Yeah, I thought I had opened the restaurant door and travelled into a previous decade. A live action version is apparently in pre-production, but I imagine years away.

Got this package today from Trident Studios, and it’s definitely at least an O’Closcar Contender for best package ever. I grew up with comics in almost every store and regularly present in cereal boxes and candy. As an adult, I’m always on the lookout for finding those nostalgia bombs, and have spent more than I care to admit on ebay for various mini and promotional comics of yesteryear. Well, here came like 30 of them in this set of unauthorized reprints. 17 DC mini-comics from Post cereals 1979-1981, 9 of them from Canada so unseen by me until now. The 8 DC secret origin comics from Leaf candies. 6 Marvel or Archie comics from Bubbles Funnies. And the topper, over 140 Hostess ads from Marvel and DC! Nicely reprinted and even enlarged by like 20-50%, except for the Hostess ads obviously.

He sells a couple of these on Etsy and ebay, but can’t sell the DC ones because of DC lawyers. But message him and he’ll sell them to you, they’re about $8-14 each. Might want to hurry if you want the DC ones. He also has a couple DC Super Powers mini-comic collections that I bought previously.
