Marvel Apes…UGH!!

Posted by lordcomicguy on August 18, 2008



So, I was down at my local comic dealer not to long ago, grabbing my stash, and talking shop when I noticed a page out a previews book he was flipping through that shows our beloved characters looking a tad more…primal…and by primal, I mean they were MONKEYS!!

I saw the page and laughed a bit, thinking it was a joke, but to my suprise (and disgust), this is honestly something Marvel is going to put out!! Don’t believe me? Let me show you what THEY have to say about issue #1…


Flingin’ feces, True Believer– the entire Marvel Universe has gone APE!
Just when he thinks life can’t get any worse or weirder, Marty Blank – a.k.a. that lovable loser, the Gibbon — finds himself and the brilliant-and-beautiful Dr. Fiona Fitzhugh transported to a world where monkeys rule and humans don’t exist!
SEE the spectacular simian city of Monkhattan!
MEET the hominoid heroes and villains – SPIDER-MONKEY! DOC OOK! IRON MANDRILL! SIMIAN TORCH! THE APE-VENGERS! And more!
THRILL to the return of Speedball!
CONTAINS No-Ads, as we are thrilled to present you backup tales exploring the Apeiverse!
LEARN the dark secret of the primate planet!
WORRY that the fate of the entire universe is in the hands of the Gibbon!
Not a hoax, not a dream, not an imaginary story – just the most not-to-be-missed mini-series of the season! If you only buy one (well, two) comics this month about super-powered, intelligent apes-in-capes, it must be MARVEL APES!
Rated T+ …$3.99


What the hell is marvel thinking???? The whole Zombie idea was interesting at first and could have been so much more if they hadn’t f-ed it up but Marvel Apes?!?! You know, I sorta get it…that with the success of comic movies bringing more and more newbies into the fold…that they want to put things out there to appeal to new, younger readers, but this is a serious slap to the face. I easily rank this up there with the whole ‘Brand New Day’ garbage and the shit they are putting out in Hulk now.

Hopefully Marvel comes to their senses and stops bending to their own popularity and gets back to some quality storytelling instead of this watered down crap they are trying to sell us.
