Well, news of my secret comics project has hit the internets.
And here’s the blurb for that first issue:
Get your hands on these damn dirty Apes! Beginning an all-new series that takes place before the original 1968 Planet of the Apes movie in the continuity of the first five films! Ape society has reached 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?
Yes, that’s a lot of exclamation marks, but that’s how we roll in the comics industry. I’ll be handling story and script, Carlos Magno will be doing the art, and Ian Brill will be editing. It’s an ongoing comic, and the first issue comes out in April, with covers by Karl Richardson and Chad Hardin.
I’ll be able to talk more about this soon, but I can say we’re going to show people a Planet of the Apes they’ve never seen before — the coolest, meanest Apes we can make — while respecting everything that’s come before.
I’m stoked. I mean, Stoked!!

This is great news! There are many, many POTA fans who are very excited about this.
You’ve inspired me. I just put the 1960s/1970s POTA films in my Netflix queue. Planet, Beneath, Escape, Conquest amd Battle.
Please telle you worked in one line from Stop The Planet Of The Apes I Want To Get Off.
Tell me. I meant tell me. Stupid phone.
As I finished the first script, I was singing to myself, “Come on and rock me, Doctor Zaius.”
Beautiful … The abundance of exclamation marks is perfect – makes me think of “It’s a maaadhouse!” and “God damn you all to hell!!!”
