Ape, not monkey a comic strip about science, skepticism and their relentless battles with superstition and pseudo-science.
|Toby is an ape, not monkey. A bonobo that enjoys science and sees the world through skeptical eyes.||Pastor Bear: A loving Christian who wants everyone to share in his love of God—whether they want to or not.||Wilbur: A lefty westie and spiritual environmentalist. He sees himself as the voice of reason when science and religion conflict, but has yet to fully understand either.|
|H.R.: The confidence man/mongoose, whose cynical attitude allows him to make as much money from the gullible animals in the zoo.||Thomas is a good tortoise who always tries to do the right thing. He looks up to Pastor Bear as a mentor, which is not always the best thing.||Clemens: A bulldog of a monkey, who has no patience for faith and unreason. A happy warrior he is not, but he does enjoy it.|
|Arlen: A paranoid pika, who prides himself on his skepticism of everything from authority to science itself. Conspiracies are everywhere and the only safety he knows is he underground home.||Piggy McCarthy despises vaccines because he sees them as dirty. He also finds himself constantly at odds with Toby, who is skeptical of his skepticism.||Dee-Quack Chopra: The master of woo, who always looks on the bright side of quantum consciousness.|
