The Adventures of Kool-Aid Man

    (Archie, 1993)
™ and © Archie Publications
Marvel publishes #1-3, Archie takes over publishing at #4

Kool-Aid Man first appeared in a series of live-action TV commercials that debuted in 1975. His facial image had originated on Kool-Aid packets as far back as the 1950s, as one that was drawn by a finger through the pitcher condensation. By the 80s, Kool-Aid Man became a super-hero of sorts and also a star of his own infrequently published comic book series that could be had by sending in some proof-of-purchase seals. Some were published by Marvel, but the majority of the issues were published by Archie and drawn by Dan DeCarlo.
