From the team that brought you BETRAYAL OF THE PLANET OF THE APES comes an all new Apes saga! Gabriel Hardman (HULK, AGENTS OF ATLAS) and Corinna Bechko (HEATHENTOWN, FEAR ITSELF: THE HOME FRONT) team up with red hot artist Marc Laming (AMERICAN CENTURY, THE RINSE) to take the fan-favorite franchise to all new heights in this can’t-miss mini-series. With ape society gripped in uncertainty, Doctor Zaius must find a way to unite the warring factions before they rip the city apart. It's up to one lowly chimp to seek out the famed, disgraced General Aleron deep in the heart of the Forbidden Zone, with a secret that might help — or destroy!

    It's nothing to complain about by any means but Jordie Bellaire's coloring is what makes the page layouts to life. We are in the midst of a human rebellion where they don't need to speak to find their voice. Read Full Review

    "Exile on the Planet of the Apes" #1 begins another victory lap around for this masterful Ape team. If you enjoyed "Betrayal," then rest assured this is the sort of sequel without a sophomore slump. Bechko and Hardman take us forward in time two years and then continue the next great aspect of this delightful Ape saga. If we're lucky, this miniseries won't be the last tale they tell in this world with these characters. Read Full Review

    Apes enthusiasts may need this in their collection, but for me there's nothing compelling or original enough to need another issue. Read Full Review

    I'm glad this is a story that fits in with the previous miniseries but stands on it own. I would say its needs a little polishing in the art work. It feels rushed so they could capture the success from the last book. But it's worth picking up for new readers to Planet of the Apes and I can't wait to see where the next issue leads us.

    Planet of the Apes is generally thought of as a niche genre. I'm not sure I can convince a non-fan to pick this up, especially if they aren't some level of science fiction fan. However, this story definitely sets up like a politically driven prelude to war comic book. And I think anyone that likes these kinds of stories, regardless of their background in the Planet of the Apes universe, should give this issue a try. Read Full Review
