Marvel Comics To Release Classic Planet Of The Apes Omnibus Next Year


Not that long ago Marvel announced that the Planet of the Apes series will be making its long awaited return to Marvel Comics. Nearly five decades have passed since Marvel printed anything Planet of the Apes related.

Now not only will fans be able to read new adventures on the world rules by Apes, but they will also be able to read many past adventures thanks to a brand new Planet of the Apes Omnibus. The book will contain 11 issues of the classic Marvel comics and will release in 2023.

The latest press release from Marvel states:

“Last week, Marvel Comics announced a brand-new era of Planet of the Apes comics storytelling. The groundbreaking science-fiction phenomenon will return to Marvel Comics with a new series next year and fans will also be able to enjoy Marvel’s previous Planet of the Apes stories in the upcoming Planet of the Apes: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus.”

“This rare collection will reprint all eleven issues of Adventures on the Planet of the Apes for the very first time. The beloved 1975 series adapted the first two iconic Planet of the Apes films and hold a special place in the hearts of Planet of the Apes and Marvel Comics fans alike.”

“When a crew of astronauts crash-lands on a strange and desolate world, they discover a society of apes with heightened intelligence and speech. And here, a race of mute humans are their slaves. Can the mission’s leader, Taylor, fight his way free and hold onto his humanity? What is the shocking secret of this Planet of the Apes? And what unfathomable danger lies beneath the surface?”

“Find out when a second spaceship makes its way to this uncanny world and another astronaut faces a battle for survival, with the fate of the entire planet at stake. 
It’s the simian sci-fi staple in the mighty Marvel manner! Relive Marvel’s take on the classic films Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes in one action-packed volume.”

With Marvel taking over the series from Boom! Studios hopefully they will be able to do a good job with this re-release of classic stories. Hopefully they won’t edit or censor anything out like a handful of other re-releases.

Are you looking forward to collecting all the classic Planet of the Apes comics in one place?
