The Monkey Glands

We’re still monkeyin’ around here for another day with our ancestors, so grab a couple bananas, hop into your tire swing, and check out this ridiculous mad scientist classic.

From the August 1953 issue of Strange Tales #21

For the person who requested more Reinman...

Great art for a truly wacky story! Franz is truly the poster child for the FDA, not to mention PETA. Of course part of me years for the days when you could just buy a monkey and inject its precious simian fluids into your own bloodstream without the interference of government agencies. I wonder where the current candidates for president stand on recreational xenotransplantation? :)

I can see why you had "The Ape Man" trailer preceding this.

You know, it isn't terribly dastardly to plot to get your brother's fortune by, gasp, outliving him. I know this guy was morally flawed, what with the gambling and all, but still--he's hardly an arch-villain. I dearly love the idea that he's a little miffed on the last page, thinking he's prolonged his life for nothing. Premature youth--ah, the whimsy.

Utterly silly ending,but the good pacing and characterization more than made up for it,and Reinman's art was so good it looks almost like Jose Ortiz.

Looks like those monkeys were a little too "frisky and healthy."

Ha ha, didn't you know that impatience is a virtue?!
