On Friday, Marvel announced that they will be publishing a new Planet of the Apes series in early 2023.
While this may seem a little out of left field (especially without a Planet of the Apes movie on the horizon), it’s worth noting that Planet of the Apes was one of the many entertainment assets Disney acquired when they purchased 21st Century Fox. Marvel also has a history of publishing Planet of the Apes comics going back to the mid-1970s.
No creative teams have been announced yet, but you can check out some preview art by Salvador Larroca along with Marvel’s official press release below!
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!”
Details on upcoming PLANET OF THE APES comic book titles, collections, reprints, and creative teams will be shared at a later date. Until then, fans can check out an all-new teaser by Salvador Larroca!
