PLANET OF THE APES: Marvel Comics Announces Release Of New Omnibus Collecting Classic Stories

Following the announcement that Marvel Comics plans to tell new Planet of the Apes stories, the publisher has confirmed plans to release their classic tales in an upcoming omnibus. Read on for details...

Last week, Marvel Comics announced a brand-new era of Planet of the Apes comic book storytelling. The groundbreaking science-fiction phenomenon will return to the publisher with a new series starting next year, but fans will also be able to enjoy Marvel's previous Planet of the Apes stories in the upcoming Planet of the Apes Advenures: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus.

This rare collection will reprint all eleven issues of Adventures on the Planet of the Apes for the very first time. The beloved 1975 series adapted the first two iconic Planet of the Apes films and hold a special place in the hearts of this franchise and Marvel Comics fans alike. 

Like Alien and Predator, Marvel Comics being able to tell Planet of the Apes stories is a result of Disney acquiring 20th Century Fox. A big screen reboot is also currently in the works.

When a crew of astronauts crash-lands on a strange and desolate world, they discover a society of apes with heightened intelligence and speech! And here, a race of mute humans are their slaves! Can the mission’s leader, Taylor, fight his way free and hold onto his humanity? What is the shocking secret of this Planet of the Apes? And what unfathomable danger lies beneath the surface?

Comic book fans can find out when a second spaceship makes its way to this uncanny world and another astronaut faces a battle for survival, with the fate of the entire planet at stake!

It’s the simian sci-fi staple in the mighty Marvel manner, and you can relive Marvel’s take on the classic films Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes in one action-packed volume!

Check out the covers of the omnibus below and stay tuned for more news about Planet of the Apes' exciting future at Marvel Comics.
