Angel and the Ape #2 - Wally Wood art

Angel and the Ape v1 #2, 1969 - Only in the 1960s would a publisher come up with this farcical, yet zany series. This detective duo of a girl and a gorilla had premiered in Showcase #77 only a year before. Bob Oksner, one of the preeminent humor artists as the time, brought his considerable talent to the series. Wally Wood's inking begind with this issue, making Angel O' Day more beautiful and the scenarios more laughable. Despite not doing the pencils, this often overlooked retro title contains some of Wood's best "good girl" art of the period. This is number 1 of 5 Angel and the Ape issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Angel and the Ape issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
