Comic Book Ads, Fruit Pies, Hostess Ad

The Thing in “Sunday Punch”

Ben Grimm, the ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing gets his turn to hawk baked goods this time around.  A giant animated building has ruined The Thing’s snack run by causing havoc amongst the city dwellers.  Some clobberin’ time could take care of things, but gawkers are getting in the way so he distracts them tender crust wrapped around delicious fruit filling and lays waste to the villainous building.  Sadly though, The Thing used all of his fruit pies to save the day.  Just his luck.  Is this just a normal routine for The Thing or did he have a serious case of the munchies?


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.
