Corinna Sara Bechko and Gabriel Hardman have produced a visually stunning tale that immerses readers in the continuity of the original films, with appearances from Zaius and Ursus, and plenty of references to ape law. Hardman's art gives the setting a rough, almost medieval feel that works well with the story. Once again, BOOM! Studios has gone with excellent talent for this licensed property, giving it the treatment it deserves. They've truly impressed me with the quality of their PotA projects, elevating it above the current Star Wars and Star Trek releases.
Dr. Zaius finds himself immersed in a conspiracy involving a secretive gorilla general and the apparent murder of an orangutan scientist who taught his human subject the art of sign language. All is not as it seems, however, and soon Zaius discovers far more than he bargained for, including the extent of the inherently destructive power possessed by the humans...
The attention to detail on both the writing and the artistic sides are impressive, as is the obvious affection for the original APES series. Classic characters are depicted faithfully, while new characters are introduced seamlessly. The plot twists provide some insight into Zaius, and how he acquired the knowledge leading him to become the pessimistic scientist we see in the movies. And, as in the movies, the debate continues as to how right or wrong Zaius is about the extremes of human nature.
As much a blend of science fiction and political allegory as the films themselves, BETRAYAL OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is an engaging prequel to the enduring saga.
