Hostess ads ran in comic books starting in 1977 with Batman and the Mummy. This continued for five insane years. Five years of amazing super beings tossing food to madmen whose special ability may or may not have been really enjoying peaches.

Each hero has his or her own unique approach to fighting crime with snacks. Aquaman likes to fail or suck and then share in cupcakes. Captain America prefers to kick the fuck out you maybe hand you a pie, and then kick out whatever fuck you have left. But Thor and Wonder Woman... those two use Hostess treats as a portal to an impossible underverse of dislogic and nonsense.
Through countless hours thumbing through old comic books in dozens of collections and stores, I can safely say that this site now has every known-to-me super hero Hostess ad in the fucking world. Make no mistake, this is probably our galaxy's most important museum and sometimes even more. Because when an ad's link text is in color, that indicates that it's been carefully analyzed by me and the crack team of Hostess Analysts.
Interview with Bob Rozakis
In this exclusive interview, I try to get answers to my Hostess questions with one of the actual writers behind them, Bob "Answer Man" Rozakis.
Actual Real-Life Hostess Adventure
In March of 2000, the world barely survived a Twinkies shortage.
