Availability: In stock

$19.99
Reimagining of a sci-fi classic. Recommended. By Rod Serling and Dana Gould. Art by Chad Lewis. Based on the original screenplay for Planet of the Apes by The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling. On the road to making the landmark science-fiction classic, 20th Century Fox commissioned Serling to adapt the source material. His first draft, which was drastically revised before filming, is a radically different vision of the franchise than the one the world has come to know and love. Now, for the first time in any medium, that vision is fully realized as a graphic novel adapted by acclaimed actor/comedian/writer Dana Gould (The Simpsons) and Chad Lewis (Avengers Origins).

Details

Based on the original screenplay for Planet of the Apes by The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling. On the road to making the landmark science-fiction classic, 20th Century Fox commissioned Serling to adapt the source material. His first draft, which was drastically revised before filming, is a radically different vision of the franchise than the one the world has come to know and love. Now, for the first time in any medium, that vision is fully realized as a graphic novel adapted by acclaimed actor/comedian/writer Dana Gould (The Simpsons) and Chad Lewis (Avengers Origins).

This is the world you know from the acclaimed Planet of the Apes film series, but with key differences -- Taylor is Thomas, and Ape City isn’t a crude, primitive grouping of huts; instead, it’s a bustling and urbane metropolis filled with cars and skyscrapers and a vibrant Ape culture. In a world where Apes wear modern clothes, drive modern cars and rule the late night talk show scene, the arrival of one man will forever change how Apes – and Humans – view themselves.

Outstanding cover painted by Paolo Rivera. Eight-page afterword by Dana Gould. Also 10 pages of bonus features on designing each one of the characters, each illustrated with character studies, and discussed by both artist and writer! The cover art is also examined, with original concept drawings and an interview with Rivera.
