Gorillas With Guns!

Today's topic was requested by Mark Feldthusen from Copenhagen, Denmark, @feldthusen on Twitter.
In the 1930's there was a comic book character called Six-Gun Gorilla. According to The Encyclopedia of Golden Age Superheroes, this silverback gorilla escaped from a circus-train wreck, strapped on guns, and traversed the Old West seeking vengeance. This character was featured in a British paper of that time, and has been a contemporary subject for artists who update or reinvent fictional characters in a British forum called Whitechapel.
