Comic Book Ads, Fruit Pies, Hostess Ad

Daredevil vs. Johnny Punk!

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?




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.
