Marvel Universe Faces A Simian Takeover

Earlier this year, Marvel Entertainment announced that the Planet of the Apes franchise will return 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 and now it’s the dawn of a new era. To celebrate the launch of the upcoming Planet of the Apes comic series, some of Marvel’s biggest talents have crafted stunning variant covers depicting Marvel super heroes trapped on a world ruled by apes. Just like the groundbreaking film series, these scenes range from action-packed to poignant and will grace the covers of Marvel’s hottest titles throughout February.

 Marvel Comics and Planet of the Apes have a rich 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. Now, Planet of the Apes is back at Marvel and ready to take comics by storm!

Check out the first Planet of the Apes variant covers following the jump and stay tuned for details about the upcoming new comic series! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
