Marvel Apes

Taking a break from the Marvel Zombies theme, let’s jump to another theme Marvel had back in 2008…Marvel Apes! I’m not sure what the premise was for these books but monkeys are always entertaining! Have you ever watched the chimp channel?? It’s hilarious!

Why would you go to all the effort of swiping a cover only to change which side the wasp is on??? Again these things keep me up at night! Other than that a nice swipe.

A lot of modern covers in this set, at least we don't have to go over the same covers again … One More Day would have been a lot better with apes in it, guaranteed!

This is the first time I have seen two swipes on one cover. The image itself is a Giant Size Invaders 1 swipe but the title bar looks like a Civil War comic.

Smart use of bananas to swipe a cover of a run that didn't come even close to people's expectations.
