Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

Human Torch in Hot Time In Old Town

The Human Torch is the second member of the Fantastic Four to pitch delicious baked goods in a Hostess ad (at least on this site.  The Thing, hawking Fruit pies, was the first).  While reading a newspaper ol’ Torchy finds out the city is burning because of some manic with a flame thrower.  I guess he can’t be too much of a maniac because he wises up and stops his arson spree when Twinkies are dangled in front of his face.  Who can resist that?  I mean besides the Human Torch, who just tosses the cakes around and doesn’t eat them, because no super-hero is EVER seen eating these things.  Trust me, I’m looking and I haven’t seen it yet.



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.
