Manic Monday--A Thinking Man's Rhino!!

Not to quibble...

...but there's really not any magic--black or otherwise--involved in this story. So, it's sorta like when the History Channel gives you Ice Road Truckers or BBC America shows the Matrix: space-filling mission creep.

But hey, how can we complain, when we get...

And the very first panel of the story answers the cover blurb!

Yes, atomic mutation!! From all of those atomic tests in the Sahara...?

Anyway, let me get out of the way, as they present the very first story ever narrated by a rhinoceros!!







OK, the idea of an intelligent rhino training monkeys to build vehicles for him might just be the most comics thing I've read in quite a while...











And that's what intelligence gets you!!

Still, it was a better Rhino then we got in Amazing Spider-Man 2...

From Black Magic #50 (1961)
