Monkey Covers

Sunday is Monkey Covers day here at YACB. Because there's nothing better than a comic with a monkey on the cover!

It's Yarn Man vs. Cowboy Gorilla on Don Simpson's cover for Don Simpson's Bizarre Heroes #9 (1995).

(Standard disclaimer about cowboy gorillas not really being monkeys applies.)

Friday Christmas Five of a Kind: Snowmen Attack!

I've collected cover scans for over 1200 comics with a Christmas theme, which at 25 per year would take me over 40 years to post them all! So every Friday during December this year I'm posting five theme-related Christmas covers.

Sure, they have songs that call them "Jolly Happy Souls," but you just can't trust those snowmen!

Nothing says Christmas like sleepless nights, ghosts from your past, and difficult labor-management relations. That must be why Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a favorite this time of year!
