    I remember when I was a kid I had hundreds of the little comics wrappers that I had collected. Kept most of them in the leather pocket of my bible carrier…for some odd reason. It’s a shame that the comics are pretty much ending. I would love this book. Wish I still had my original collection. No idea of where they ended up. Probably the same place that my Matchbox Voltron, Castle Greyskull, and Voltron castle and Thundercats Lair ended up….the great toybox in the sky.

    Wow! I love the site and loved Bazooka bubble gum… especially the comics!

  4. Good luck everyone! Erick, I’ve got a giant bag of Bazooka Joe gum beside me…as soon as I chew it all we will pick a winner. Should be next week. :)

  5. ME WANTS THIS ! .. man i used to read these when i was a kid. would love to win this ! love you !

  6. Count me in too. Sad that they’ve decided to rebrand BAZOOKA JOE and remove the comics and characters. All they needed to do was modernize the characters, give them some ADULT SWIM edge, change the prizes into digital download and make the gum softer!

  7. Jeff says:

    Cool, I’d also like to enter a contest for some dental work to fix the tooth I cracked on that gum.

  8. I wish I could find the new Bazooka gum around here. I want to see what they replaced the comics with. The book looks great!

  9. Mr. Sweet says:

    Would appreciate being entered. I remember the big bucket of Bazooka gum at my Little League’s concession stand….5 cents a piece. Great gum, great memory.

    The long arguments with friends of how Bazooka Joe must have lost his eye…
