Six-Gun Gorilla! The story of one gorilla's quest for vengeance across the Old West. The archetypal cowboy ape, publicly available for the first time.
"Six-Gun Gorilla" originally appeared as a fifteen-part serial in the British story paper Wizard in 1939. Anonymously-written, and appearing alongside such immortals as Crispin Gaunt (the African railway adventurer-detective) and "Dr. Matto - the Man Who Knocked Out The World" (with his sleep-inducing Amazonian centipedes), Six-Gun Gorilla would have been consigned to the dung heap of pop culture history if not for E.S. Turner and his Boys Will Be Boys (1948), the landmark account of British magazine popular culture. Thanks to Turner, successive generations of readers have been tantalized by his description of the Six-Gun Gorilla and his lengthy attempt to avenge the murder of his human master. But because the Wizard issues of 1939 have become rare, few have had the chance to read "Six-Gun Gorilla." Until now.
A note for the concerned: "Six-Gun Gorilla" is in the public domain in the U.S. and U.K. Though published in 1939, the serial's copyright was never renewed in the United States, and 50 years have passed since its publication in the United Kingdom.
