Comic Ads Template

.

Comic Ads are more than just the mountain of Hostess Ads we know and love. Over the years, many a company has used one page comic ads to shill their products in the pages of comic books! So I thought I'd do a list series that showcases those ads, and shows you what issues I've found them in. To me, these are as much a part of comics history as any superhero, and I love 'em for the nostalgia they bring. I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy.

Hostess Ads List template

.

On a site dedicated to making a wiki history of all things comics, comics ads should not be forgotten. Especially the ads for Hostess Fruit Pies, Twinkies, and other snacks. Starting in 1975, Marvel and DC heroes (and the Harvey, Archie, and Gold Key/Whitman characters as well!) spent seven years throwing Hostess snacks at a bizarre line of villains to stop their crimes. Although many of the villains were completely silly, they were created specifically for these ads, and in many cases, not even the names have been used again, since the ads stopped in mid-1982.

So I thought I'd show an ad here, and make a list of the comics I find it in, as I run across them. This list features: ?? As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:

You Get A Big Delight In Every Bite <# (Hostess Treats) #> Enjoy.

Fan-Fic Long Box - Authors

.

Reading this in BLOG VIEW will get rid of that annoying double-spoiler thing. -cb
Intro:
I've been a regular customer of the Fan-Fic Comic Shop, and the fics have really started to pile up. So I had to get some long boxes to store them in. Grouped by author or fan-fic group, displayed in links, and stored in protective spoiler block sleeves, my digital-only collection is looking great. Feel free to flip through my back issues and see what I've been reading. -cb
If there's a number or listing, but no link, it means I haven't read it yet (or haven't found it again yet), but I plan to.

Would U Buy It #91: "U.S. 1"

#DateWelcome to WUBI # 91:Choose Your View:Attached to Forum:Back/ Next
09109/06/13U.S. 1(Blog) (Forum)U.S. 1(Back) (Next)

We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:U.S. 1..
Alternate Titles:1) The Adventures of Ulysses Archer; 2) ...Ulysses Solomon Archer..
TPB Cover:U.S. 1 #1
Collecting 12 Issues:U.S. 1 #1-12.
Covers (click to enlarge):

In May, 1983, U.S. 1 was just hitting the highway, even as Team America was pulling in from its last ride (see WUBI #70). I've never quite understood why Marvel felt the need to do this series, but I finally picked up four of the issues from the dollar bin, just yesterday. On what would later be the letters page, the first issue offered clues, seen in this excerpt from writer Al Milgrom:

It started back in June of 1982. Jim Shooter called me into his office, he said he had a project he wanted to discuss...

Jim explained that the people at TYCO had seen some of Marvel's work, the comics we produced, the characters we designed. They liked what they saw. They wanted Marvel to do a treatment of their U.S. 1 electric trucking set. "Trucks?" I said, rather incredulously. "Trucks!" replied Jim emphatically. Jim asked if I felt we could do anything with trucks. Frankly, I wasn't sure. Nobody had ever done anything with trucks in comics before. ...I voiced this concern to Jim... "Exactly!" he exploded. "Nobody has done it before! Maybe nobody thinks it can be done! There may even be a lot of resistance to the idea. But we can do it, and do it well!"

Aha! It was a licensing deal- all about the money! Now it was all clear, and it's not something Marvel was a stranger to, by any means. They had been licensing Star Wars since 1977, and Micronauts since 1979. Both would outlive U.S. 1 into mid-1986, although Micronauts ended the same time U.S. 1 #11 was coming out, and restarted as Micronauts: The New Voyages, the same time U.S. 1 #12 was released (something called The Transformers started the month between those two issues). Also, the eleven issue series The Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior started the same month U.S. 1 did, and Starriors started the month after the trucking title finished. And lest we forget, they had been handling G.I. Joe since June of 1982- the same month Jim Shooter started talking to Al Milgrom about developing U.S. 1 for comics. So yeah, Marvel knew how to jump on a licensing deal.

U.S. 1 is kind of unique from the rest of those titles though. They were all action figure lines, some of them stemming from movies or cartoons, so the comic characters were readily recognizable to readers. This was the U.S. 1 trucking set though (it's 8:44 long, but go ahead and watch. This was what we did before home video games)...

...Funny thing is: when I started writing this, I didn't actually realize that this was the set they were talking about. I had one of these as a kid! I had the dump truck, the crane pipe loader, the pipe drop off, the gravel truck, the gravel loader, and the gravel pit. Hm...makes me wonder what happened to it- I think I gave it to my brother. Anyway...

How the heck do you write comics from that?! Ahh, that's the cool part- all Marvel had to do was use the name "U.S. 1" and make it about trucks, and the rest was up to them. Tabula rosa is a beautiful thing- in the days before widespread creator ownership, a blank slate is the thing a creator wanted most. It's the same reason fan-fic writers like to write the underused characters- the less history there is for a character, the more you can do with them. A blank slate though? You could let your imagination go wild, and Al Milgrom and Herb Trimpe did just that. So enter Ulysses Solomon Archer and his rig, the U.S. 1. Any good hero needs an arch nemesis, and U.S. Archer had The Highwayman. There was also a Catwoman-esque villainess named Midnight, and a great supporting cast in Poppa Wheelie, Wide Load Annie, Taryn O'Connell, and Retread (whom you would notice is gay, if you were paying attention). I've read the four issues I have- a third of the title- and I have to say: I think Marvel did a fantastic job.

Why give it a trade paperback though? Keeping in mind that Marvel owns the characters (not TYCO- they just licensed the name "U.S. 1" to Marvel, to garner name recognition through the comic title) I think Ulysses Archer is begging for a comeback, and there seems to be more than one creator that would like to give it to him. Archer has appeared in issues of Sensational She-Hulk, New Avengers, and even Deadpool Team-Up. Some of those appearances lean towards a comedic bent, but if the right teams says, "I can make this work," Marvel may contract this trucker for another haul. I think it would be good to have his driving record accessible if that were to happen. I suggested the alternate titles though, because Marvel may not have the right to use the U.S. 1 title anymore.

For the cover, I'd go with the first issue. It's everything a good cover should be. It shows the hero, a hint at his origin, what makes him special, and his nemesis. Perfect for the TPB cover. And though I don't often think of the back cover, I have thoughts on this one. I think the #7 cover of Midnight on U.S. 1's bumper is beautiful, and it never hurts to have a good lookin' babe on the cover. Truthfully though, the last issue's cover is the perfect parting shot, and would be great for the back of the book.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.

Would U Buy It #90: "Black Lightning, Vol. 1-2"

Welcome Back to Would U Buy It! :^D

#DateWelcome to WUBI # 90:Choose Your View:Attached to Forum:Back/ Next
9009/04/13Black Lightning, Vol. 1-2(Blog) (Forum)Black Lightning(Back) (Next)
Special Note:
Would U Buy It has been on a long hiatus! The site redesign wreaked havoc on the images for the previous installments, and it's taken some time to figure out what I was going to do. I've finally figured out how to fix the ones I could, and the rest are waiting on the fantastic team of CV engineers to debug, so I can get back into them! Until then, I can at least create new ones, so here's hopefully just the first of many more WUBI's! -cb

We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here are two of mine:

Proposed Title:Black Lightning, Vol. 1..
TPB Cover:Black Lightning (1977) #8.
Collecting 12 Issues:Black Lightning (1977) #1-11; Cancelled Comic Cavalcade #1..
Covers (click to enlarge):

*******

Proposed Title:Black Lightning, Vol. 2..
TPB Cover:Brave and the Bold #163.
Collecting 13 Issues:DC Comics Presents #16; Justice League of America #173; Brave and the Bold #163; World's Finest #256-261; Detective Comics #490-491, 494-495..
Covers (click to enlarge):

DC Comics' 1977 Black Lightning series deserves to be in trade paperback. The title post-dates Marvel's last issue of Black Goliath by several months, and is even two issues behind their Black Panther title, but this is the first series for DC's premiere black superhero! It's a little whacked out that a guy with so much power is trying to be a street vigilante, fighting gangs and pushers, but that was the times- if he was black, he had to be hood. He picks up his own sort of Kingpin in the form of Tobias Whale, and has an interesting encounter with Merlyn. Unfortunately, the title was victim to the infamous DC Implosion, and was cancelled with issue #11. There was a planned issue #12, and black-and-white copies of that were included in Cancelled Comics Cavalcade #1. I would include that material in the Volume One trade paperback, just for fun.

His title having ended in September, 1978, Black Lightning languished less than a year. By May, 1979, he was appearing in back-up tales of World's Finest, followed by a stint in back-ups of Detective Comics, and peppered with appearances in DC Comics Presents, Justice League of America and The Brave and the Bold. It's worth noting that the story from World's Finest #260 uses the material that was planned for Black Lightning #12, and previously only seen in Cancelled Comics Cavalcade. Thirteen issues of appearances in all, I'd collect these into Volume Two, in chronological order of publication:

Comic Title#Pub. DateStory Title
World's Finest256May 1979"Encounter With a Dark Avenger"
World's Finest257July 1979"Death Ransom"
World's Finest258Sept 1979"Blood of the Lamb, The"
World's Finest259Nov 1979"Last Hideout, The"
DC Comics Presents16Dec 1979"De-Volver!, The"
Justice League of America173Dec 1979"Testing of a Hero!"
World's Finest260Jan 1980"Lure of the Magnetic Menace"
World's Finest261Mar 1980"Return of the River Rat"
Detective Comics490May 1980"Black Lightning Strikes Out!"
Detective Comics491June 1980"Short Circuit"
The Brave and the Bold163June 1980?
Detective Comics494Sept 1980"Explosion of the Soul!"
Detective Comics495Oct 1980"Animals"

For the cover of Volume One, I'd use Black Lightning #8. It's a cool shot of him fighting Tobias Whale. For Volume Two, there's less to choose from, because he wasn't on most of the covers. I'd go with The Brave and the Bold #163, because he's at least on the cover, and centered in the picture pretty well.

I think that's a whole lot of Black Lightning in two fantastic books! How 'bout you?

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
