Wonder Woman and the Maltese Cupcake

You remember those Hostess ads in the back of comic books, don't you? The ones with Thor bashing people with his hammer to stop them from stealing Twinkies and the like?

Well, Gone and Forgotten has a classic, incomprehensible one featuring Wonder Woman and the search for the Maltese Cupcake.

Highlights:

• Is she trying to stop crime, recover a stolen artifact, or just helping an antiques collector source a particular item? Wonder Woman, personal shopper?

• An arch-villain tricks her into coming to a bad part of town, corners her, and then—tells her to promise to stop looking for the cupcake.

DC's finest hour!
