    When it comes down to it, Marvel Apes is the type of book in which you know what you're getting in to long before you actually sit down to read it. If the idea of an ape-like Captain America gets you all hot and bothered, then you'll probably enjoy the title regardless of its silly contrivances. Kesel himself sneaks in a small amount of self-mockery, which suggests he understands the whole premise is ridiculous. And as it turns out, along with some solid cartooning by Ramon Bachs, it's this very attitude that almost, but not quite, saves Marvel Apes from complete obnoxiousness. Read Full Review

    All in all, this book hits a mark much higher than I had set for it, but given the nature of apes, very few things are ever out of reach. Thats not to say this was a great book, but I have purchased worse. While I was hesitant to pick this one up, I found myself almost enjoying the purchase in spite of my expectations. I'm certain that I did not enjoy it enough to have my LCS hold a copy of #2 for me, but if it happens to be available, I would at the very least flip through it. Read Full Review

    In the end, all I can do is beg to the higher powers I never have to put myself through reading another issue of Marvel Apes. While I didn't approach this series looking for the next Watchmen, I didn't expect to come away more disgusted than I do from reading some Chris Claremont stories, and I hate Chris Claremont.
