Oops. I think I just sold a rare Spider-Man poster for $5



This is a thing I discovered a little too late on a Spider-man item I recently sold online. I was at a garage sale the other day, there were like laminated cutouts from newspapers being sold and one of them I got was this gigantic spider-man color ad from the '80s. It's laminated and it says "Frankly, I'd rather have an apple." Eat fruit. Eat smart.

I posted it online and sold it for five bucks.

THEN I started looking up exactly what this poster was.

It's from a commercial ad campaign for the spider-man animated series that was in the 80s. They tried to get kids to eat smart obviously, it's in the name of the stupid thing.



Each commercial would be like:
Spider-man saves the city in some way shape or form and then at the end the mayor would try to give him some sort of reward and Spiderman would say

"Frankly, I just want an apple."

There were a few different scenarios and different fruit. Then he would fly away and tell everybody to eat smart.

And that's what this is from.

The item I sold was a full sheet newspaper ad and if you look even closer you can see like Snuffy Smith and all those other things on the other side of it.

As I was looking it up I couldn't find any other pictures of this ad online or nothing.

And that's when it occurred to me right after I sold it - Nobody has this! This is a rare item! Like, this is something that doesn't exist anymore and I sold it for five bucks.

I should have auctioned it. Live and learn I guess.

Only other thing I did was search for an old phone I had to use for a camera so I did use this. Sorry Dex.

John Porcellino: Creator of the King-Cat minicomics - American Bandito Podcast S05E06

I mentioned in a previous episode of the show I had participated in an annual zine fest in Madison called Print & Resist. One of the people showcasing his work at the event was John Porcellino, creator of the popular mini-comic zine King Kat.

I went up to his table to introduce myself and I blurted out that I had this podcast and I would love to talk with him. We exchanged information and he was nice enough to talk with me a few weeks later on facebook messenger.

Parking.

I feel bad thinking that way but it's not like parking enforcement has proved me wrong over the years.
