Here's a few Valentine's Day treats. From this point on, I'm skipping the order #'s. You have the page in the catalog to look in, that'll be good enough.
DARK HORSE (www.darkhorse.com)
Usagi Yojimbo #91 - $2.99

APE ENTERTAINMENT (www.ape-entertainment.com)
Go-Go Gorilla and the Jungle Crew Winter Fun Special - $3.50
Superhero funny animal hijinks in the snow. Which sounds like a plotline from a 50's comic instead of a 2000-era one. =};-3 The cover is by Scott Shaw!, so at least one page of the art will be good. The interiors by Erwin, Hall, Hedgecock and Evans look okay, so what the hell.
