Monkey Covers

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

From May 1953's Strange Adventures #32, Captain Comet submits to an experiment switching his mind with that of a gorilla in this cover by artist Murphy Anderson illustrating John Broome's lead story, "The Challenge of Man-Ape The Mighty." Why the good Captain would agree to an experiment run by such a sinister-looking scientist is beyond me, especially since the scientist thinks that a green lab coat goes with purple trousers (a science lab faux pas if I've ever seen one!)

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