Dear Readers,

It just occurred to me that you may not know what the hell we are referencing in the above strip.  Well, ok, that probably happens quite a bit, but today I’m offering up some explanations!

Between 1977 and 1982, Hostess ran ads in the back of comics, like this one–

Delightful, yes?  I mean, Batgirl + Twinkies, what’s not to like?  I must give a shout out to Wendi Freeman, who totally suggested that we do a our own Percy Pie ad, and for posting all of these awesome ads.  Head on over there if you need a way to kill some time on the Internets.

You’ll also notice that our Pie vs. Cake strip stars OmniGirl instead of Jane.  OmniGirl is the character that I created with Meg Brennan for our story in Womanthology.  I’m pleased to announce that we’ve been hard at work on an OmniGirl mini-series, and we’ll be printing issue #1 in a couple months.  I’ll be sure to post a preview of the book here, so stay tuned!
