Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

Batman and The Mummy

I’m so sick of seeing Batman in the Hostess ads, but he’s in the most ads that I’ve found so what choice do I have?  Just make the most of it.

This starts off pretty dramatic (as far as Hostess ads go) and quickly falls into the usual idiocy.  I like the opening line of “The mummy has captured the professor and his beautiful daughter,” which I inferred as if the daughter was fugly him and Robin would walk away.  Robin gets in a funny after Batman announces he has come up with a plan “Seems like I’ve heard this before.”  Of course, because they’ve been in 5,000 Hostess ads!  Finally the Mummy declares he’s been around 2,000 years and never tasted anything so good, which is ironic since the Twinkies will still be around 2,000 years from now.


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.
