Thanks to BOOM! Studios, today brings a look at not only all the covers for the brand-new Planet of the Apes #1, but a sneak peek at some interior pages. Carlos Magno’s artwork is breathtakingly awesome! This book is going to be as gorgeous to look at as it will be fascinating to read. My only hope is that Magno and writer Daryl Gregory are both committed to this book for a good long while! Here’s your preview and a few new details from BOOM!
Taking place before the original 1968 PLANET OF THE APES movie, but true to the continuity of the first five films, this new ongoing comic series begins in a time when Ape society reaches a new golden age. But there are ripples of dissent in both the ape and human ranks. Tensions will rise and soon all will be caught in chaos! And amidst all this uncertainty, what is the fate of…The Lawgiver? Find out as a new chapter of the acclaimed sci-fi classic, PLANET OF THE APES, begins this April!
PLANET OF THE APES #1 is written by Daryl Gregory with art by Carlos Magno and ships with an A & B cover by Karl Richardson and Carlos Magno respectively, a special 1-in-10 “Damn Dirty Apes” incentive cover and a retailer variant for Larry’s Comics by Chad Hardin! This title ships in April and carries a Diamond Code of FEB110852.
