Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a real page turner with fantastic art. I got totally caught up in the story mainly because the art is so detailed. The story plays nicely as a Dr. Zaius origin and set up for further stories featuring the protagonist of this one- Citizen (formerly General) Aleron. The story cruises along and you just don't want it to end, but when it does it's actually a bit anti-climatic. The ending is the downfall of this particular story. I know there is a follow up, but I have not read it yet. Perhaps that will make up for this one's disappointing conclusion.

Format: Paperback
What surprised me the most about the trade collection of BOOM! Studios' BETRAYAL OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was that it included an introduction by Ed Brubaker - first, because introductions for collections are so rare these days, and second... it's an introduction by Ed Brubaker!!! He has plenty of praise for this 4-issue series, and he's right when he mentions that it could be considered "Dr. Zaius: Year One"; however, that's just part of it. Set 20 years before the events of the first PotA film, this stand-alone tale focuses on a gorilla named Aleron, a former general now serving as defense lawyer and confidant for an orangutan scientist who has taught his pet human to communicate using sign language - a heresy in ape society. The scientist is later found dead, and a plot develops to discredit Aleron. He must then take matters into his own hands, investigating the scientist's death, as well as confronting an event from his own past... and all while confined to prison.

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.

Format: Paperback
Inspired by the classic science-fiction movie series, Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman take the original PLANET OF THE APES storyline in a new direction with this revealing tie-in graphic novel.

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.
