Edible Fletcher Hanks comics

Zack sez, "Just did an interview with Sylvia Toth, who uses public-domain images in a unique way -- she creates sugar cookies with images from 1940s comics printed onto icing sheets with food coloring. Her best-sellers are a line of cookies featuring images from Fletcher Hanks' Stardust the Super-Wizard, and they've earned a thumbs-up from Paul Karasik, who collected Hanks' stories in I SHALL DESTROY ALL THE CIVILIZED PLANETS! Though people are often reluctant to actually eat the lovely cookies, I've tried them, and they're worth ruining the art over."

Classic comics inspire Golden Age Bakery in Chapel Hill (Thanks, Zack!)


  1. No one in my household has brought themselves to eat any of the cookies we got from her Kickstarter! It’s a weird problem to have.

  2. Well this was perfect.  I’m sick, and thus was able to waste part of my semi-vegetative day “researching” Fletcher Hanks, who appears to be something like a poor man’s Basil Wolverton (which is no great insult).  This was also more or less Will Eisner’s assessment.  The alcoholic part makes sense, only someone in an altered state could have come up with this: http://thatsmyskull.blogspot.ca/2006/01/making-of-super-villain.html
