Strange Adventures #231

Strange Adventures #231, July-August 1971

You think it’s not fun when a bird drops a little unwanted gift on your head? Well, thank your lucky stars this cover doesn’t represent reality! Imagine being dumped on by a giant flying gorilla!! As the tag line of a well-known 50s sci-fi movie exclaimed, “Keep watching the skies!” This actually a reprint from a 1961 comic.

Sid Greene drew this image, but the mastermind behind it is — as ever — Julie Schwartz, a man driven by the idea that a gorilla on a cover delivered guaranteed sales.
