The Incredible Hulk and "Friends!" (Hostess Ads #92)
|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: The Incredible Hulk and "Friends!" As noted on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page:
Abducted by King Torkon of the Toad Men, the Hulk finds himself aided by a rebellious Toad Man determined to set the green behemoth free. Blasting an escape path and offering friendship by way of Hostess Cupcakes, the Toad Man won over the Hulk - who set out to defeat Torkon.
