Detective Chimp : Adventures of Rex the Wonder Dog #4 (July–August 1952)

Created by : John Broome and Carmine Infantino

Detective Chimp has always been one of those characters who I couldn’t help loving. At first glance he seems silly and almost cartoonish in nature, but when you really start to get into the character you realize that, while he has a murky origin that has changed time and time again, he ends up being a really cool character. 

 

Weird fun fact, “Bobo” is not his real name, which he won’t share. It is revealed by the Phantom Stranger’s narration in Shadowpact #7 to be “mostly an unpronounceable screech and three grunts,” which translates as “Magnificent Finder of Tasty Grubs.”
