Wanna Join the Mile High (Comics) Club?

January 1998

Thunderbolts #10

So, this seems like it’s supposed to be a two-page ad, since it lists all of the Marvel Comics but only gets to C in DC, but I swear this is all there is! I guess since this was in a Marvel comic, maybe that’s why they focus so heavily on Marvel titles, and just use DC as space filler.

In going through and adding tags for all the different titles, I was surprised by how many I’ve never heard of – I mean, I expected there to be quite a few, but not this many!

So these comics are only 50¢ each – not a bad price! However, there’s a minimum order of $20, which means you’d have to order 40 books in order to get anything! I guess for hardcore collectors that probably wouldn’t be a problem, but when I go digging thorough a bargain bin, I usually only pick up a few issues – a couple times when I’ve really gone nuts, I might’ve gotten up to 20, but I don’t think I’ve ever bought 40 comics at a time!

Any Wolves in the Howling Commandos?

September 1963

X-Men #1

This has been a year full of fury, so why not end it with Fury? Nick Fury!

Yes, Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos, back before Nick Fury was director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and way before Nick Fury was Samuel L. Jackson, he was just a badass army guy!

Do They Have a Feud With West Coast Comics?

December 1989

Wonder Woman #37

I think this post wins for number of tags! Yep, you could buy just about any title from East Coast Comics, from Akira to X-Terminators!

What I wouldn’t give for prices like those on some of these titles today!

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!
