    I very much enjoyed this graphic novel, more than I thought I would with the subject matter. The original-eraPlanet of the Apes films transfer much more easily to print media where the limitations of CGI and costumes/make-up are not present. When this book ends with the story being totally wrapped up, there is a sense of finality where I knew the story wouldn't have to be extended; it's a stand-alone tale that tells a brilliant story and ends on a powerful note.

    Having read the novel, and enjoyed all of the films and many Boom comics, I'm truly impressed with how many different ways the Planet Of The Apes can be presented. Gould and Lewis present a captivating adaptation of Rod Serling's original screenplays that captures the same magic of the '68 film while introducing new angles, shifted theme focus, and perhaps the most tragic ending to date.
