  1. Damn, I might have to get more than one of these covers. I’d love to see Samnee do interiors on an Apes book one of these days.

  2. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    So, so stoked for this!

  3. Better be zero adds if that’s the page count and price.

  4. POTA is such a good series. If I got it right, the Annual is the official end of the title, and the one in the fall replaces it… Cataclysm

  5. These apes comics are really great. The regular series is kind of hybrid of the original series and the marky mark movie with excellent art and story.

    The other series is totally old school and the art is real throwback style that suits it.

    I always liked the old movies but was never a superfan but I really look forward to these comics. They are high quality comics and not your typical independent let down. Both are top notch.

  6. All the Apes books have been tremendous. I’d like to see an increase in pull #’s.
