Hostess Twinkies Ad: A Passion For Gold

Hostess ran a series of ads featuring Marvel characters in comics throughout the 1970s and early 1980s that decades later I still indelibly associate with Cupcakes, Fruit Pies and Twinkies. Marvel comics dated February 1980 featured two ads depending on their release schedule. The Spider-Man Meets June Jitsu ad had previously appeared in Marvel's November 1979 releases, but Mr. Fantastic vs. Goldigger in A Passion For Gold was all-new and all-awesome with pencils by Sal Buscema and inks by Mike Esposito.
