D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Goodbye Twinkies!

 

Much has been made in the press about the closing of Hostess Bakeries and the death of our beloved, crème-filled Twinkies.

But only here on the I.T.C.H. blog do you get the comic book perspective on this tragic news.

 

How does this affect the comics industry? What does it mean to super-heroes and cupcake fans? Will comics fandom survive the death of Twinkies, Snowballs, fruit pies and other delicious staples of the American diet?

“But wait,” you might say. “This blog is about comic book and cartoon characters, not cupcakes and confections! Have you lost sight of your mission?” No, ye of little faith. The Twinkie and his baked brethren have been featured in comics many times – 234 to be exact!

Thanks to Tom Zjaba and Tomorrow’s Heroes, all 234 comic book ads for Hostess products are available for your perusal. 

 

 

Naturally, this wouldn’t be Comics Tunes Tuesday if we didn’t include a song. And like Twinkies, today’s song comes two to a package. Enjoy this Hostess commercial followed by “Too Many Twinkies” by The Queers. (Warning: explicit content.)
