Strange Adventures #75, December 1956, cover by Gil Kane and Bernard Sachs
Sometimes, people ask me why I like comics books.
This is a cover
of a gorilla,
robbing a librarian,
at gunpoint,
for Moby Dick, Robinson Crusoe, and Treasure Island,
for the purposes of conquering the world.
What’s not to love?
