Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

Thor Meets a Glutton for Gold

Finally an ad for Twinkies!

Gudrun loves gold, but Thor convinces him the golden cake of a Twinkie is better than gold.  Now I think Thor contradicts himself here by declaring Twinkies are more valuable than gold, but then offers Gudrun all of the Twinkies in Asgard.  Odin is going to be pissed off when he gets the munchies and he’s only left with a box of raspberry Zingers (Odin hates coconut).


About briandettmann

Brian Dettmann started collecting comics in the summer of 1984 when he and a friend stopped by the Waldenbooks and Paper Tiger bookstores in the Fox River Mall in Oshkosh, WI. Despite moving to comic/civilization deprived eastern Vermont a couple months later, the two issues purchased that day led to a lifetime of reading and collecting comics (not to mention spending untold amounts of money). Now in his early-40s Brian lives in north Texas with his (unbelievably patient) wife, three (non-comic reading) children and varying amounts of dogs. He still reads comics, but doesn’t consider himself much of a collector anymore. Brian has been writing and drawing comics almost as long as he’s been reading them. His current strip, “Kids ‘n Dogs,” premiered February 2008 in The Chronicle, a great weekly newspaper published in Glens Falls, NY, where it can be read (nearly) every Thursday.

  1. I really wish Marvel and Hostess would put together a collection of these strips. Classic stuff.

    • Given all of the compilation books out there, it really surprises me nothing has been put together yet. Between Marvel, DC and some of the other cartoon characters these ads include it would be a lawyer’s nightmare trying to get everyone to agree, which means it would probably cost a fortune if it was ever published.
