Oxy 10 Comic Book Ads

I was terrified of having pimples as a kid. That terror was no doubt due to this series of ads that ran in Marvel Comics around ’84 and ’85. Okay, it could also have been due to the “un Pimplin!” SNL skits, but I’m pretty sure these Oxy 10 ads, which labeled different varieties of pimples, had something to do with it.
