Marvel Comics is back in the Apes business and that means that the publisher will be looking back, as much as forward. Yep, Omnibus time.
We recently told you about Marvel Comics’ newest license, Planet of the Apes. The publisher will be moving forward with a brand new Apes book, which looks to be seated firmly within the classic universe of the IP.
But as mentioned, Marvel is looking both forward and back at the same time. Along with new adventures on the Planet of the Apes, there’ll be some classic action to read through as well. That, of course, comes by way of Marvel’s original PotA comics from decades past, which adapted the movies.
When a crew of astronauts crash-lands on a strange and desolate world, they discover a society of apes with heightened intelligence and speech! And here, a race of mute humans are their slaves! Can the mission’s leader, Taylor, fight his way free and hold onto his humanity? What is the shocking secret of this Planet of the Apes? And what unfathomable danger lies beneath the surface? Find out when a second spaceship makes its way to this uncanny world and another astronaut faces a battle for survival, with the fate of the entire planet at stake!Marvel Comics press release
