Comic Book Ads, Hostess Ad, Twinkies

Spider-Man in “The Spider-Man and the Fly!”

Whoever wrote this edition must have been paid by the word;  this is probably the wordiest Twinkie sales pitch I’ve ever seen; comparitively the Russian novel of Hostess Comic ads.  Most of it was wasted too because Spider-Man din’t tempt the Fly with Twinkies until almost the end, and this was news to me Spider-man had a utliity belt.  I know he kept back-up web fluid cartirdges on a belt, but didn’t think about a place to store baked goods.

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.
