Here Are Some Easy Steps For Proper Dental Care! (Comic Ads #22)
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.
At first glance, this would appear to be a PSA, rather than an ad, but when you see the Aim toothpaste in two panels, and the Pepsodent toothbrush in another, you realize that yeah, it's an ad. This was actually part of Exclusive Collectors' Edition: Spider-Man, but the rest of the comic was actually a decent (and at times hilarious) story. This page was at the end, and it's the only page I noticed promoting Aim or Aim products. Spider-Shill is in full on endorsement mode in this ad, so remember: he doesn't actually brush with it. Still, it's fun.
