Josie for Hostess


Every comics fan from the seventies remembers the annoyingly juvenile but inevitably well-drawn superhero ads for Hostess products. They've been parodied, archived and doted on ever since. What most folks forget, however, is that it wasn't just the heroes. Harvey and Archie characters were sometimes recruited for sugar shilling also! Here, for instance, is a rarely seen JOSIE ad for Hostess fruit pies. The unsigned art is probably by JOSIE creator Dan DeCarlo.
