Despite appearances, judge not this book by its cover. Kesel and company have me genuinely intrigued about those furry Not Avengers.

But even to skeptics like me (who lampooned the first issue with a 4.9), it's hard to deny the drastic jump in quality that was made in between the first two issues. The artwork is easy on the eye, and even if it requires the disclaimer "For a book about monkeys", there is a fair amount of pleasure to be had in the story. Don't get me wrong, Marvel Apes is still unconditionally stupid, but it's also a tad bit of fun once you open your mind. Read Full Review
