"Who are they? What are they?" Angel and the Ape. 1960's funny comic from DC drawn by Joe Orlando, hilariously revived in the 1980s by Phil Foglio. Sam Simeon is a gorilla passing as human and a cartoonist. Angel O'Day is a judo expert. They're detectives. Angel is some reposed fast-food figure (Megara from Disney's Hercules?) I used paper clip wire to hold Concrete Patch for her pointy hair. Her mod dress is coffee filter paper dipped in white glue laid over a plastic hoop skirt. The dress is copied from a vintage 1960s mod design. No idea why her hair is white. Angel actually never uses a gun, but I figured she needed it to look like a detective. Sam is a TMNT Sgt. Bananas gorilla body and a Dollar Store gorilla head. I had to build his left foot (the one that shows, naturally) from scratch as it wore a shoe. His hair is doll hair patched with white putty. His tie is a picture of a real vintage tie, printed on a color printer, then cut and rolled to size. He holds a paint brush to show he's mostly a cartoonist and only a part-time detective. Since he's secretly sweet on Angel, she gets her way every time. "Oh, Sam, don't you trust me?" Phil Foglio retro-fit that Angel and Dumb Bunny of the Inferior 5 are sisters, so they're part of my I5 set to come.

Now THERE'S something you don't see every day!

Nice work! I think all the guys who make Deadpools and Wolvierines and Hulks over and over could learn a thing or two from this kind of original thinking! (Not an insult, just an observation. To you random passerby who's about to get all offended, I think your Deadpool is lovely. Boring, but lovely nonetheless. )

Looks great!

Fun fact: Sam is Grodd's grandson!

Yes, good catch. And it's because he's Grodd's grandson that he inherited the mind control powers so he can make people "not notice" he's a gorilla!
