"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!

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

The fine folks at Marvel provided The Outhouse with a preview. You can check it out here .

Just to open up the criticism for this week, that is like the most boring comic book cover Dave Johnson has ever done in his life. I didn't even realize that was his until just now.

Is Gorilla-Man really a fan favorite? Deadpool is a fan favorite. Atlas books get canceled every time Joe Q notices they're on the production schedule.

I agree. The monkey/ape/gorilla fad is as lamesauce as ninjas, zombies and vampires and anyone who perpetuates it should be banned from the interwebs forever. :x

In the 50s, Julius Schwartz proved that putting a Gorilla on a cover improved sales.

Is there even a 'Gorilla Fad' as you say? There's Gorilla Man, Hit-Monkey and Congorilla, pretty much it.
