Monkey Covers

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

After a month of Jungle Girls vs. Apes, we're returning to regular monkey covers. But of course there's nothing 'regular' at all about any monkey cover, and what better way to kick off the month of October than with Titano putting the hurt on Superman on the cover of 1959's Superman #127, drawn by the man himself, Curt Swan, with Stan Kaye on inks. A giant ape with Kryptonite vision--that's still one of the 10 coolest concpets in comics books of all time!

BTW, this story is reprinted in the recently-released Showcase Presents: Superman, vol. 1, along with hundreds of other pages of silver age Superman madness.

(standard disclaimer about apes not really being monkeys applies)
