The Amazing Spider-Man in the "Where's the Cap'n?" Mystery (Comic Ads #10)
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.
Appearing in 1986, this double page spread had Spidey and scores of cereal lovers looking for the missing Cap'n Crunch. Given four possible locations, you had to get a detective kit from specially marked boxes of Cap'n Crunch to help you to figure it out, but it turned out the Cap'n was in the Milky Way. I've been looking for info on how many people shared the million dollars, but have yet to turn anything up.
