From the publisher:

PANELS FOR PRIMATES is a charity anthology of primate-themed comics, prose, and illustration, with contributions from veteran creators and talented newcomers alike, assembled by Troy Wilson. Proceeds from this anthology go to benefit the Primate Rescue Center in Nicholasville, KY, a nationally respected sanctuary housing more than 50 primates, including 11 chimpanzees. The organization’s work has been featured in the award-winning book Animal Underworld, by investigative journalist Alan Green and the Center for Public Integrity, in the magazine Animals’ Agenda (now Animals and Society Institute), on television and in newspapers nationwide.

One thing that’s so great about Panels For Primates is how it combines comics and prose in single volumes, coupling the short stories with their own spot illustrations, which look amazing on your tablet. Anthologist Troy Wilson has done a wonderful job of curating a unique, entertaining book with an amazing agenda.
