Comic Book Ads, Cup Cakes, Hostess Ad

Hawkman Makes a Safe Landing

I’ve often pointed out that we never see heroes or villains enjoying Hostess products in these ads, but this edition is downright insulting.  A skydiver is having  parachute problems, but Hawkman is there to save him and his Hostess Cupcakes.  Once on the ground the skydiver shares his precious baked good booty with other skydivers, but doesn’t even offer Hawkman a morsel.  WTF!  The winger hero saves the dude’s life and this is the thanks he gets?  Personally, I just enjoy Hawkman’s parting words, you can almost hear the dripping sarcasm.


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.
