Hawkman Hostess Ad

Keeping with the classic tradition of Marvel and DC characters helping us make informed choices in our junk food purchases, Hawkman uses the power of cupcakes the quell a potential riot at a "Pete McCarthy And The Flyers" concert.  Seems the primadonna is "sick" and cannot perform, enraging the already hopped-up-on-goofballs crowd into a near frenzy.  Luckily, the Winged Wonder's quick thinking, along with his feathered friends dive-bombing of snack cakes, quiets the crowd.

Because nothing espouses Thanagarian culture more than appeasing hippies with delicious chocolate cake, fudgey frosting, and cream filling before locking them up for the rest of their lives as dissidents.

That, gentle readers, is how Katar Hol rolls.

I believe the art is by Curt Swan and Vince Colletta, who did the vast majority of the DC Hostess ads.

And am I crazy, or would a HC book collecting all the Hostess ads (including the Archie and Harvey ones) be really cool?
