USA Today recently did a feature on Ape’s announcement that they were publishing a new mini-series featuring the lovable muppets. It’s the first time in the show’s 40+ year history that it’s ever been turned into a comic series. This is a great grab by the small press comic company, who have made news with their recent reboot of Richie Rich, Casper and their comic adaptations of Strawberry Shortcake, Shrek and MegaMind.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century trilogy reaches its apocalyptic finale!
In this third and final chapter, our narrative draws to its cataclysmic close in London 2009. The magical child whose ominous coming has been foretold for the past hundred years has now been born and has grown up to claim his dreadful heritage. His promised aeon of unending terror can commence, the world can now be ended starting with North London, and there is no League, extraordinary or otherwise, that now stands in his way. The bitter, intractable war of attrition in Q’umar crawls bloodily to its fifth year, away in Kashmir a Sikh terrorist with a now-nuclear-armed submarine wages a holy war against Islam that might push the whole world into atomic holocaust, and in a London mental institution there’s a patient who insists that she has all the answers.
It’s a spectacular finish that must be seen to be believed.

Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter
Written by Russell Nohelty | Art by Renzo Podesta
Ichabod Jones is a deranged, mentally unstable psychopath. He’s also on a mission to save the world. At least that’s what the bossy voice in his head tells him. The same voice that led him to be interred in a maximum security mental asylum in the first place. Now, he must escape from the asylum and rid the world of monsters in the midst of the Apocalypse. Of course he’s a psychopath, so who knows if anything going on in his head is real in the first place.
