The Amazing Adventures of Holo-Man Ad


Somebody had really high hopes for Holo-Man, as this breathless ad shows. Not only did he get his own Power Record, but kids could send away for an entire Holo-Man Adventure Kit!

I've never been sure whether Holo-Man was created by someone else and then licensed to Power Records, who assumed they were getting in on the ground floor of The Next Big Thing, or whether The Captain of Color was their own in-house idea. Judging by the fact that the mailing address of Atomic Comics was in the same city as Peter Pan, my hunch is the latter. Which means, somewhere, there's probably a dusty warehouse with several boxes of unsold Holo-Man 3-D pendants.

I think I read...somewhere...that Holo-Man was indeed Power Records own creation. They saw the sales of their DC and Marvel items, an said "Hey, we can do this!" Not so much.

Yeah, you're laughing now, wait until the $200 mil HOLO-MAN movie set to debut Summer 2019, directed by Brett Ratner!

I imagine the only kid who sent away for the Holo-Man Adventure Kit lived in Springfield and his name was Milhouse VanHouten.
