I just found this ad in an Amazing Spider-Man from 1984. I never had this spaceship, but I saw the ad in the 80s many times and wondered just how awesome it would be. Having read Mail Order Mysteries, I wonder today just how awesome it really was. Still, I’d like to give it a try.
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.
