“Banana Cream Pie Fever” to be featured in Panels for Primates

“Banana Cream Pie Fever,” a short comic story written by John Schlim Jr. and illustrated by Chicago-area artist/designer Andy Jewett, is being added to the rotation of the Panels for Primates webcomic project on ACT-I-VATE. Jewett used a contemporary underground cartoon style for the strip to create a primitive feel that suits the jungle setting perfectly. “Banana Cream Pie Fever” will debut on the site on November 24, 2010.

Edited by Troy Wilson and hosted by ACT-I-VATE, Panels for Primates is an ongoing anthology that will feature new primate stories or strips by different creators every Wednesday, all to benefit the Primate Rescue Center in Nicholasville, KY. Readers will be able to view the ever-growing archive of primate stories absolutely free, but will be encouraged to swing over to http://www.primaterescue.org and donate what they can. They should specify that their donations are Panels for Primate donations.

Panels for Primates will offer an eclectic mix of creators and content, with the only common denominators being high quality and primates. The stories/strips will range in length from one page to ten pages.

The mission of the Primate Rescue Center is to alleviate the suffering of primates wherever it occurs by:
-providing sanctuary or referral to appropriate facilities.
-working to end the trade of primates both in the United States and abroad.
-educating the public to the plight of primates caught in the breeder/dealer cycle.
-assisting researchers and zoo personnel in finding appropriate placement for surplus primates.
-encouraging compliance with applicable local, state, and federal laws and animal welfare statutes.

They currently provide lifetime care for 11 chimpanzees and over 40 monkeys. In addition to their website (http://www.primaterescue.org ), the Primate Rescue Center also has a Facebook page (http://tinyurl.com/3aj5bp8). Panels for Primates is @panels4primates on twitter.
