It's kind of funny, when you think about it... all those body-building ads in comic books... I mean, let's be honest, most comics fans tend to be either skinny or (like myself) overweight... it's only been in recent years we've seen more comics readers who are in fairly good shape. I wonder how many skinny/heavy comics readers sent off for any of these offers? I know I didn't, nor did I have any interest in them (then again, when I was a kid, I was one of the skinny ones... where the heck did I go wrong?).
