FUNNYBOOK CHIMP

Detective Chimp

Detective Chimp has been around since 1952 (see Wikipedia article here).

The sturm und drang put forward in the DC Comics' "Day of Vengeance" series (2005) is completely missing here in Bill Willingham's light-hearted story which pokes fun at superheros and the problem of being a super-genius chimpanzee. There's also the problem of Dr. Fate's helmet which makes for trouble when used.

The art by Shawn McManus is also humor-laden and well done, full of complete backgrounds the sort of which many hero-artists do not bother with anymore, and with a funnybook sense of caricature for humans and their expressions.

Funnybook Contradictions

It's interesting that the cover (by Simone Bianchi) for Detective Comics #827 has no relation whatsoever to the inside story.

In said story, traps are set by "the Ventriloquist," in the shape of a new partner for the lethal talking dummy (new partner is a buxom blonde in a red dress) who helpfully carries the immobile puppet around. The old wrinkly "ventriloquist", called Arnold Weskers, is dead (but incidentally isn't in the coffin in which he was recently buried).
