Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

A Flash In the Dam

Are you like me?  Are you sick of Batman stealing all the thunder for DC when it comes to Hostess ads?  Time for someone new; someone like the Flash.  Here he faces off against the Destroyer who is about to destroy the Doover Dam so everyone else in the world will be miserable like him (hmmm, I wonder if ANYTHING could possibly make him happy).  Thankfully the Destroyer can only destroy a small hole in the dam, which Flash easily (and quickly) fills in with loose rocks laying around.  Then Flash introduces him to Twinkies, which makes him so happy he is willing to end his destroying ways and turn himself in. I don’t think the destroyer thought this through very far, because the odds of him getting a Hostess Twinkie in prison is pretty unlikely.  I’m sure he’ll get some thing spongey and creme filled; like a Dolly Madison Zinger.  They seem like prison food.



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.
