I think this is one of the more dramatically drawn Hostess ads, at least when ol’ horn head is in the panels, perhaps as a way to reflect the mood of Daredevil’s title. Johnny Punk has a plan to control people’s minds through his music, which Daredevil doesn’t like because he’s a good guy. DD properly assumes Johnny Punk and his gang can be distracted from their dastardly plan by waving some Hostess Fruit Pies in their faces. Who can resist the tender filling and real fruit filling? Not these dudes. Off to jail they go, though I’m not really sure they even committed a crime.
Anyone else think Johnny Punk is an allusion to the Sex Pistols?
