    While we're not given a satisfactory conclusion to the tale in this issue -- it is, after all, only the second installment in this series -- we're definitely given reason to come back for more. This series is full of uncertainty and excitement, great characters, a good setting, and the possibility for, well, anything to happen. I have no doubt that whatever happens, Bechko and Hardman are going to make it well worth it to follow along. Congratulations to BOOM! For not only delivering more "Planet of the Apes" product, but delivering more high-quality product that contributes to the legacy of the brand rather than just adding more clutter to the shelves.

    He is portrayed as good guy in this series who is trying to get to the bottom of a murder in which the most sacred law of “Ape shall never kill Ape” There is more than a murder than meets the eye and the council is not happy with Dr. Zaius' idealistic nature which is weird and interesting to see if you watched the movie. The story also touches on the political aspect of life in Ape City as Chimpanzees are almost considered second class citizens. The artwork did an excellent job of depicting facial reactions of the characters. If you liked the movies, you'll like this book. Bottom line, buy it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Deniz Cordell Dec 12, 2011

    This is definitely a book, however, that requires you to read the first issue before leaping in " there is no brief "recap" page, and since so much of the basic scenario is set up in that first issue, it's not really something to be read alone. The plot is tautly constructed, the scripting is to the point and gives unique shadings to characters, and the art lends heft and excitement. It's a grand adventure, and the cast is appealing enough to ensure interest in the story. One final word of advice while reading, pop in one of the Apes scores " whether it's by Jerry Goldsmith, Leonard Rosenman, Tom Scott or Lalo Schifrin " the combination of the music and story really provides an immersive little experience.
