Boom! Studios to Revive Those DAMN DIRTY APES
If you didn’t have ENOUGH reasons to be a huge fan of them after all the Disney Afternoon show revivals that Boom! Studios is doing, this new one should put you over the top on declaring them the best comic publisher out there. It’s no secret that we have fallen under the sway that is the Cult of Boom! (can I trademark that?) but it’s for good reason, they put out extremely well written and drawn comics, hell they keep consistently winning awards as a publisher. So it’s only fitting that they are the ones to take Twentieth Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes franchise to the next comic book level.
It’ll be written by an award winning sci fi novelist Daryl Gregor (Dracula: The Company of Monsters, Pandemonium), and drawn by Carlos Magno (Green Lantern Corps). Keep you’re eyes peeled in April, because we’ll be giving you all the reviews and updates as they come along.
Here is some more info for you to soak up:
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?
“In the new series, we’re taking our cues from the classic Apes movies but we’re shaking it up with some major surprises of our own,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “This book is sure to make fans new and old cheer, rave and, dare I say, go Ape when they see what we have in store for them!”
hat do you guys think?
