    The thirty pages of story make the $4.99 cover price worthwhile, at least in comparison to the value of most other comics. Superlatives like "Special" and "Spectacular" make it sound cool, and the #1 on the cover makes it look cool, but it's the story inside that is cool. This one-shot is the long-welcomed next chapter of a great story, and whatever the superlative tacked on to the title of the next episode, here's hoping it'll be seen soon. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Brandon Dingess Jul 31, 2013

    I was probably the wrong person to review this book given that the only "Apes" titles I've read from Boom! are "Cataclysm's" first handful of issues and, thus, lacked the background on what's going on. But I still enjoyed it. If, like me, you love the "Apes" franchise, then give this a look. At $4.99 it's a little more expensive than I usually care for, but I think it's worth it if you're a fan. Because of "Spectacular," I'm going to do some looking and see what, if anything, I can read to shed some light on this story. 3.5 stars. Read Full Review

    Help me Dr. Zaiusthis competently written and drawn book provides ZERO editorial context and leaves new readers dangling from The City Tree (whatever the hell that is). Read Full Review
