Hawkman #16, October 1966

What’s this? Why, yes, it’s yet another appearance of our old friend, the flying gorilla! This Gardner Fox/Murphy Anderson tale, “Lord of the Flying Gorillas!”, is a direct sequel to the story in Hawkman #6, which I reviewed HERE.

By this time, as you can see from the cover lines, the Batman tv show ‘craze’ was in full swing. “Go go gorilla with a big beat…”?! DC’s famous Go Go Check livery is also on display. Bit of a wild time to be a comics fan was 1966.
