Captain America & Nick Fury Hock Hostess Fruit Pies

April 1980

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7

This is by far my favorite ad that I’ve ever run across, so I thought it would be fitting for my first post. Captain America and Nick Fury use delicious Hostess Fruit Pies to save the Earth from invading aliens! Surprisingly, this didn’t come from a Marvel title (though I’m sure it was published in Marvel comics, it’s just not where I happened to find it), but from Whitman comics.

You know, the first Avengers movie featured an alien invasion (sorry about spoilers if you haven’t seen it yet, but I think it’s been long enough) – it seems like they could’ve solved their problem with much less fuss if only they’d had an ample supply of Hostess Fruit Pies!
