Kong On The Planet Of The Apes is an upcoming six-issue comic miniseries published by BOOM! Studios. It is a crossover between the King Kong and Planet of the Apes franchises, and is set in the aftermath of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes film.

Information

Kong On The Planet Of The Apes was revealed by the comic's writer Ryan Ferrier in an exclusive interview with Empire magazine on August 9, 2017. According to Ferrier, the comic is set directly after the events of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes, and begins with Dr. Zaius and General Ursus leading a group of soldiers into the Forbidden Zone to find and destroy any remnants of Taylor's time, only to discover the body of a Kong. Zaius, accompanied by Cornelius and Zira, then leads an expedition to the creature's place of origin, Skull Island, to learn the truth behind the discovery, where they encounter the last living Kong.

The series will be illustrated by Carlos Magno, who had previously illustrated some of BOOM! Studios' other Planet of the Apes comics as well as Kong of Skull Island, with cover art by Mike Huddleston. The first issue is scheduled for release in November 2017.[1]

It was only a matter of time before this happened; the last couple of years have seen Planet of the Apes crossovers with Tarzan, Star Trek, and even Green Lantern. Honestly, I'm a little surprised this didn't happen sooner.

They're setting it after the original movie and not the Tim Burton one or the modern ones? Brilliant. I'll definitely be checking this series out.

I didn't think anyone even still acknowledged that the Tim Burton movie happened.
