The simian theme just does not quit at the Weekly Alibi, mostly thanks to longtime art director Tom Nayder’s fearless refusal to back down from the challenge of finding excuses to put his hairy best friends on the cover. (We have it on good authority that he does in fact harbor a chimp in his home.) Feast your eyes on 18 eye-gouging, monkey-riffic covers after the jump.
