Strange Adventures #108, 1959

Strange Adventures #108, 1959

This is another comic which I am including by merit of its 10 cent cover price, as most collectors would consider it a Silver Age comic because it was published after 1956. DC comics went through a period in which they frequently featured gorillas on the covers of their comics; an editor had determined that their books sold better with a gorilla on the cover. This is a great example of the type. The first story in this issue even has a tale which is reflected by the cover illustration - which was not always the case. “False advertising” of a cool cover with nothing related inside was a common sales tactic in the old days. The Human Pet of Gorilla Land story in this issue has nice artwork by Carmine Infantino.
