The Ape Escape Comic is a comic that was published in the Winter 2000 Issue of Disney Adventures Magazine.


The Professor has sent Spike back in time to retrieve the Magic Punch Gadget, which was stolen from the apes. After catching several apes, Spike eventually runs into Specter and the ape holding the Magic Punch. After catching the last ape, Spike prepares to fight Specter, but Specter flees, and warns Spike that he will one day rule over the earth. Spike is then teleported back to the lab, ready for another mission.
