DC and Marvel have been advertising major comic book events with TV commercials for the past few years, but another publisher was doing that - way back in 1993.

Then-upstart publisher Malibu created and bought air time for a series of commercials promoting their Ultraverse comic book line - and they were included for posterity in the VHS release of a short film based on one of their lead titles, Firearm.

Marvel Entertainment bought a majority of Malibu's assets in 1994 - presumably, these commercials as well.
