    Curt Swan and Tex Blaisdell Hostess Twinkies Ad Complete 1-Page Story "Batman and Professor Plutonium" Original Art (DC, 1980). These one-page vignette ads were sheer genius. Sure, the plots were pretty light, but they were designed to appeal to younger readers as well. DC produced their own art for these, often using Curt Swan and Tex Blaisdell, so the ads looks at a glace like just more comic book story. The Batboat design in this one is particularly nice. This ad ran in many DC comics in February-March of 1980. Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The Batman logo (and on the Batboat), story title, the Twinkies in Panel 5, and caption text in Panel 6 are all stat paste-ups. The large Twinkie image and most of the caption box in Panel 6 are missing paste-ups, leaving glue residue behind. the page is in Very Good condition. From the Tex Blaisdell Archives.
