    "Planet of the Apes" is a fascinating book of political intrigue with some fantastic scope and brutal battle components. There's a great story being started in this arc, and Daryl Gregory seems to have enough reverence and intellect in him to make this book one of the best licensed properties on the stands right now. It's a smart book with slick action and characters that already demand attention. If you like the original movie, and even some of the sequels, then this book is right up your anthropomorphic alley.
