Just for fun…
OK, so today is National Gorilla Suit Day. Did you know that? It’s true.
So, how to celebrate? Well, wear a gorilla suit, silly! Just like Hawkeye and Trapper:
But if you don’t have a gorilla suit, here’s the next best thing — 13 DC gorilla covers from the Silver Age.
Now, gorillas and comics have been the four-color equivalent of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — two great tastes that taste great together — since the dawn of the medium. But the Silver Age was the Golden Age of gorilla covers — particularly DC covers — so here we are.
There are a ton to choose from — click here for a fun retrospective of the “Gorilla Age” — but these are particularly, memorably wacky.
Oh, and do any of these feature actual gorilla suits? No, but a number of them have gorillas (or apes) in suits — as in, mod suits, space suits, Super-suits… you catch my drift.
