The “ape” half of DC Comics’ Angel and the Ape, Sam Simeon, was a cartoonist when he wasn’t helping Angel in her detective work. As a filler page in issue #6 of their series (Sept/Oct 1969), an alleged sample of Simeon’s work was presented:

Reminds me a little of this issue of Batman (#294, Dec. 1977):

But Sam’s version has the little pointy, fleshy Bat-ears, which makes me a tad queasy, frankly.

The logo for Sam’s cartoon is also oddly disturbing:

Giant hairy letters with paws moving of their own accord. Please enjoy this nightmare fuel.
