Atomic Robo

 Here's my take on Scott Wegener's Atomic Robo.  Here Robo is suddenly attacked by Nazi Gorillas.  One of my earliest published comics stories was for DC's Weird War where I inked Ken Landgraf's pencils on a story featuring gorillas that were pressed into service by the Germans in WW II.  By the end of the story the gorillas turned on their Nazi masters, of course, and returned to the jungle.
 Oddly enough, I caught a show on History channel where they talked about gorillas being used as soldiers, not by Hitler, but Stalin.  Just a wacky idea some Soviet scientist had.  Turns out gorillas make lousy soldiers.  They're not nearly aggressive enough.
