Even as an Atlas fan, I still got to say,

How is Gorilla Man a fan favorite?

GORILLA MAN #1
WRITER: Jeff Parker
PENCILS: Giancarlo Caracuzzo
THE STORY:
"If you kill the magical Gorilla-Man, you become immortal." Shooting from the pages of ATLAS, comes an all-new exploration of fan-favorite Gorilla Man! Yes, Ken Hale is blessed with might and cursed with inhumanity, but you don't know the entire tale, and how his history may destroy his present! See his storied past as an Agent of Atlas, a soldier of fortune, an ally of the Avengers, and a Howling Commando! Three incredible issues by Jeff Parker (ATLAS, THUNDERBOLTS, FALL OF THE HULKS ALPHA) and Giancarlo Caracuzzo (ATLAS)! Plus a "Many Legends of the Gorilla Man" reprint. Rated T ...$3.99


COOL! The way I look at it, a talking ape IN a comic has to be way better than a talking ape who is trying to write one. :-D

We'll be the judge of that!

Manara on X-Women I understand but how'd they get Caracuzzo to draw a Gorilla Man comic?

A Moment in the Home of Starlord

Mightymouse: Honey, why are you coming down the stairs with that weird look on your face?

Starlord: Shut the hell up!

Mightymouse: What? What's wrong with you? Why is there blood coming out of your nose and ears?

Starlord: I told you to shut hell up! Don't make me come over there and snap you in half!

Mightymouse: Oh God... you did it didn't you... you read HIM again?!

*Starlord throws table lamp into wall*

Starlord: Leave me alone! I told you I could handle it!

Mightymouse: Oh baby, you promised me. You said you'd never touch his shit again. YOU PROMISED ME YOU BASTARD!!!!

Starlord: I'm sorry. *sob* I didn't want to but its my friends. Just when I think I've gotten away from that crap they keep pulling me back in. Please... baby... please give me another chance.

Mightymouse: No, not anymore. You disgust me. Look at what that hack does to you. You're bleeding out of every orifice of your body. It's shit, Starlord! Pure shit! I can't watch you destroy yourself like this.

Starlord: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The moral of this story is: Finding a kernal of corn in a pile of dog shit doesn't make the kernal any cooler.

My Score: 0


How do you really feel?

This issue was awesome except for the art. The just didn't truly fit but that's what happens I guess. otherwise it was compelling it was quirky and it was well told. I just didn't know the world had established That there is a new batman in town. And the bit with the joker is just furthering of how Damien isn't just coming into his own but growing.

7 would have been higher but the art knocks off 2 points.
