During the month of April I came across some comics from 1975 that each featured a one page ad with different superheros taking on baddies using Hostess Fruit Pies. I scanned and posted each one right here for your enjoyment.

On the last one I posted I promised no more, but, thanks to the power of the internets, I found about a million more of these. So, instead of just pretending like these don’t exist, I bring you one last post with direction on where to go to find a ton more (possibly all of them, I don’t know, and I’m not sure I want to know).

I was also shocked to learn that Marvel comics also took part in this crazy marketing charade (Et Tu Spiderman?).

So here is a huge collection of ads that appeared in DC comics throughout the 70’s and 80’s.:
