Hostess ads

Post by newtron » Mon Apr 21, 2008 10:10 am

Hi,

Is there any interest in including the Hostess ad comics that ran in the 70s as part of the project? Has anybody ever declared them non-canon?

According to the thread at http://www.comixfan.com/xfan/forums/arc ... 36096.html there's some evidence that they do occur in 616. Personally, I agree with a poster on there that Spider-Man/Human Torch #3 is pretty much confirmation of this.

If there's interest, I don't mind analyzing some of them (though probably just the Spidey ones).

(Oh, and sorry if this has been brought up before, I couldn't find any reference to it.)

Check the Archives (link at the very bottom of every forum page), especially the big discussion (not limited to the Hostess ads) in Archive 60 which is roughly contemporary with that X-Fan thread.

thanks! that was an extremely interesting discussion. was it ever settled? the talk there just seemed to end with no resolution being established (unless it was continued in another thread that i'm not aware of - there are a lot of archives). i'm curious to know what the criteria are, especially since i've seen a couple of giveaways analyzed recently .

thanks again for the pointer!
