There aren’t enough comics about talking chimps & superheroes teaming up to fight motorcycle gangs. Thankfully Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril is picking up the slack. Now if only video game studios would get a clue and make an entire genre out of this premise, we’d have a reason to wake up in the morning. Besides bacon, of course. Bacon is the coffee of meats. And Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril is the bacon of neo-retro pulperheroes featuring multiple talking apes.

Anyway, while we enjoy bacon, you enjoy this preview of the latest offering from writer Peter Hogan and artist Chris Sprouse!

You have to admire the bravado of a guy holding a metal knife threating an army of superheroes’ magnetic-powered leader.
…wait, is that bravado? No, sorry, stupidity. That’s the word we’re looking for.
