Well, If You're Going to "Ape" Sherlock Holmes...

What happens when you pair the Silver Age Green Lantern's writer with the Silver Age Flash's Artist? You get a back-up feature about a chimp who solves crime, that's what!

These days, it's not enough to have a chimp who's clever and observant, so the current incarnation of Detective Chimp is a superhumanly smart, talking chimp...but it was not always thus. Enjoy Bobo's humble beginnings as a back-up from The Adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog #4- "Meet Detective Chimp"


  1. I have always wanted to read Detective Chimp - thanks! Perhaps his adventures will be collected one day - although I think some of them were reprinted in the 100 page Tarzan comics DC published in the 70's.

  2. Dandy: Me too! This scan was taken from one of those Tarzan 100 pagers. I found it this weekend in a dollar box. I bought it for the buck's worth of Tarzan, little suspecting it was filled with a rich vein of Silver Age Gold!
