Monkey Covers

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

Peter Cannon — Thunderbolt! battles in the Ape Arena on the cover to Secrets of the Unknown #229. That's right: The Ape Arena! I love comics!

(Standard disclaimer about apes in arenas not really being monkeys applies.)

Man, those Alan Class mags were a riot! 48 (or was it 64?) pages, all reprint, no ads, no editorial voice - hell, no obvious editorial policy at all! There'd always be one obscure superhero strip - Thunderbolt, or the Shield, or the Thunder Agents - but apart from that you never quite knew what you were going to get, and the titles were no guide!

Great stuff.
