Holy Cream-Filled Pastry! Is This the End of Hostess?

With Hostess Baking closing, a chapter of comics history ends...
This wonderfully-looney series of ads featuring all the major comics characters from Archie to Wonder Woman appeared in comics for almost a decade, featuring some of the best artists in the business including Neal Adams (above with Dick Giordano), Gil Kane, Johnny Romita (Sr), Curt Swan, Jim Starlin, and Frank Miller doing the rendering!
You can see a complete set of them HERE!
Bonus: the original art for this ad...

BTW, if you're curious as to who's to blame for this sad turn of events, the company's explanation is HERE and the union's explanation is HERE.
The NY Times offers it's viewpoint HERE.
