Green Arrow in "An Arrow in Time" (Hostess Ads #66)
|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: Green Arrow in "An Arrow in Time." As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
In his one and only advertisement, Green Arrow had to save a pair of kids from a falling cable car. Distracting them with Hostess goodies, Arrow was able to stabilize the cables and save the day.
