This Scene Does Not Appear in the Story


Cover of Crime Detective Comics v.1 #6 (Hillman, January-February 1949), pencils and inks by Dan Zolnerowich

I'm going ape about why this entire set-up doesn't appear in a single story at all of this comic book! And I say it oughta! And why would a gorilla have a safe anyway? (Please fill in your answers in the comments!)

To keep his/her valuables in it?

And if it's the gorilla's apartment, why didn't he just let himself in using his key? Or is this the apartment of a second gorilla? Did this gorilla break in with the intention of robbing the unseen and mysterious gorilla renter? And will the renting gorilla lose his deposit because the door was busted -- or because them hoods is smokin' up the joint?

So many questions!

See, there needs to be a story -- nay, a series of stories -- to answer these questions!

I'd support a kickstarter for comics based on comic book covers that are in turn not based on the stories inside the original comic.

Banana ripener.

My guess is the gorilla just wanted the blue-haired guy's green suit. (Where did he get that?)
