Another pulp recreation by Frans Mensink. I feel a sense of ambiguity about the ape’s motivations here. Is it another menace, or an enraged rescuer?

This is a crop from a cover of Mystery Novels and Short Stories (November 1939).
The artist is William F. Soare (1896-1940). I wasn’t able to find too much on him, but he does have The Field Guide to American Pulp Artists, whence I found the image above. I originally blogged the image in a post An injection, then…” at Infernal Wonders.
