The Comic Collection (also known as the Manga Collection in PAL regions) is a collection of 17 comics that can be obtained from the Gotcha Box in Ape Escape 2. These comics can be viewed in the Entertainment Center, located at the back of the Travel Station. All of the dialogue is written in Japanese, but subtitles are provided for other languages. Every comic has four panels, and in the game is displayed one panel at a time like a slideshow. Four-panel manga such as this is called Yonkoma, or 4-koma for short. A sound effect is played on the fourth panel to enhance the punchline.
