Remember those old ads for Hostess Fruit Pies? Well, I've been asked by a few business-owner friends to create comic ads in the same vein. Here's the first draft for a barbershop.

Edward and Parnell

Thoughts?

Comments? Okay...It's actually less a Hostess Treats sort of comic than it is a bad local car dealer (or furniture shop) commercial in comic form. In the Hostess comics, the point of the comic wasn't the snack cakes and pies themselves, it was that hostess snack cakes and pies were used in an absurd way to solve an otherwise unrelated crime (usually some sort of robbery). (Randy Milholland does a great spoof on the old Hostess comics, here.)

What you have is a spoof on superheroes, making awful haircuts some sort of crime (as opposed to de rigeur for anyone who thinks they look good in a half-assed Mohawk or a barracks cut). It's entertaining, but it doesn't really accomplish the effect of spoofing the old Hostess comics.
