One thing modern comics don’t have enough of is comic-style advertising. I used to love Hostess Ads featuring superheroes. Other attempts were not as successful: The AAU Shuperstar was an attempt by AAU to use the popularity of comic-style heroes to sell shoes.
Here’s a throwback advertising AAU shoes from the late 1970s. This ad is from the Dec. 1977 issues of DC Comics, and man – is this full of some horrible puns.
