Talking Apes is back to explore a medium we haven’t covered yet – Comics! 

Planet of the Apes comics date back to 1974 with a 29-issue series by Curtis Comics. Marvel’s ADVENTURES ON THE PLANET OF THE APES series (1975-1976) adapted the original film and Beneath. In this episode we will break down the first of six issues of the Apes adaptation with our colorful commentary. We discuss the differences between the film and comic and the very psychedelic artwork. And why do the gorilla soldiers wear yellow tunics? We also read your comments on this issue’s cover art.  

If you haven’t read these comics they were just released in Planet of the Apes Adventures: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus. This new collection features all 11 color issues reprinted for the first time ever!
