Eight years before astronaut George Taylor fell from the stars...the stars fell on the PLANET OF THE APES! Once the destroyer of human civilization, the Alpha-Omega bomb of yore has slept silent in the dark side of the moon. One mad monk seeks to wake the beast...and all of ape society is at risk. It’s a race against time as Doctor Zaius struggles to find an end to the madness that has engulfed all that he knows!

Looks great. I'm a POTA fan so its rather neat to see comics dealing with the franchise.

Cool. I love the POTA movies, but never read any of the comics, might check this out.

Oh this is too great for words to even describe. And Gabriel Hardman, what could be better?

I'm a moderate Apes fan. I heard really good things about the last series Hardman and his wife did. Like to pick that one up in trade before I check this out though.

This looks amazing. And this from a guy who don't like Planet of the Apes.

If it's good enough for Dr. Zaius, it's good enough for me.
