Hostess Comic Book Ads

I’m still on my quest to read through the entire 1980s run of The Amazing Spider-Man. In the early 80s issues, I found several Hostess ads. These are my favorite type of comic ads as they are comics in themselves. I do mourn since Hostess cakes are now no more. But I still have to delight in these ads as well because I realize now that they not only made me drool for Hostess, but they also shaped my view of life (as so much of the early 80s media did). I really thought that I would someday foil a robber by dropping a pack of Twinkies in his hand. I know now that I am more likely to be the robber who is so foiled. But even if that somehow happened, I think I’d be happy.
