Karl Kesel talks about The Gibbon and Marvel Apes with Dave Richards at Comic Book Resources.
And here’s a scan of Karl’s own Marvel Apes art in progress, from a backup story written by Tom Peyer:
“There are a lot of great jokes you can make, and you don’t want to miss those. At the same time, if all it is is a cocktail party joke, there’s not really a lot of reason to keep reading it. You’re going to get the joke in the first issue and, if there’s not a real story there, there’s no reason to come back. So we do both- serious and silly- and I like to think we do both pretty well. There’s something at stake in the story- a real life-and-death situation- and there are some characters you’ll really care about. Me, I really like the Gibbon. He narrates the story and always, always hopes things will go his way, but fully expects that they won’t- face it, that’s how his life’s always been.”

Stumbled across your vlog– I’m not the most internet-savvy guy in town– and wanted to respond to your comment that everyone who’s written Spider-Man would rather have him single, but no one you’d talked to could tell you why single was better.I might be able to help here.
