When Disney acquired Fox in 2019, they got all of Fox’s franchises as part of the deal. That included “Planet of the Apes.” Disney has been trying to make good use of the property in the years since. They have a new movie on the way in the form of “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes,” which is due to hit theaters next year. They also published another comic book miniseries within the universe last year simply titled “Planet of the Apes” that helped launch a 20th Century Studios imprint at Marvel Comics. “Beware” will also be published under this imprint.
The first issue in the series is set to hit shelves in January, with a cover by Taurin Clarke. It looks very much in line with the look and feel of the original films, with Doctor Zaius looming large in the background. You can check it out for yourself below. Guggenheim had this to say about it in a statement:
“I’ve been entertained and intrigued by Planet of the Apes ever since I got a Mego Doctor Zaius doll as a birthday present, and my local television station ran the original pentalogy every afternoon for a week in the summertime. In many ways, Apes is one of the OG franchises, filled with mystery, fascinating characters, and some truly off-the-wall surprises. That’s the spirit I’m working to evoke with Beware the Planet of the Apes. I’m particularly excited that we’re going to be reusing some of Doug Moench, George Tuska, and Alfredo Alcala’s original Marvel work on Adventures on the Planet of the Apes as a part of our storytelling.”
“Beware the Planet of the Apes” hits shelves on January 3, 2023.
