The Phantom vs The Giant Ape Of Tawth
I remember reading somewhere that comic books that featured a gorilla on the cover used to sell more copies than ones that didn't. I don't know why that is, other than gorillas are just pretty cool and people like them.
For a lot of characters, encounters with gorillas are unlikely and rare. This story, however, doesn't stretch the imagination too far; you expect someone like Kit Walker to have run ins with all sorts of animals.
By Jim Aparo and "Norm DiPluhm" (obviously a pseudonym, but clever).
from PHANTOM #34, October 1969
