The Press Release:
Today, Marvel Entertainment announced the PLANET OF THE APES franchise is returning to Marvel Comics with all-new stories starting in early 2023! The legendary science fiction franchise has spanned over five decades with media including comics, books, films, television series, video games, and toys.
Marvel Comics and PLANET OF THE APES have a deep history that goes back over 40 years. Marvel first published PLANET OF THE APES stories in 1974, and in 1975, Marvel published ADVENTURES ON THE PLANET OF THE APES, full-color adaptations of the iconic Planet of the Apes films.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Planet of the Apes back to the House of Ideas!” Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski said. “The new saga in the pipeline is going explore the limits of what this beloved franchise has to offer through bold comics storytelling, and we look forward to setting foot on this new adventure!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is super cool news because one of my earliest memories when it comes to cinema is from the “Planet Of The Apes” movies. Of course I would see them all on television for the most part based on my vintage but I do also remember my dear Grandmother sitting through a marathon of the whole bunch of films in Greenpoint’s “Meserole” Theater. I think we went to have Chinese food afterwards at a space that eventually became Club Europa. This will likely be an exciting new intiative for Marvel and find some awesome stuff from today’s top talents. What do you readers think about this news? Will you be looking to add whatever is coming to your weekly pull list? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Stay safe out there.
