What is Beware the Planet of the Apes about?

The solicitation for Beware the Planet of the Apes #1 reads, “INTO THE FORBIDDEN ZONE! In a hostile world run by aggressive gorillas, scientists Cornelius and Zira are the only apes alive who see value in the mute, dumb human race – but even they know human capabilities have severe limits. So when their nephew Lucius goes missing, it is with great trepidation that they turn to a human ally, a young woman who will someday earn the moniker “Nova”… Steeped in a love for the classic tales, Marc Guggenheim and Álvaro López’s series will take the Planet of the Apes legacy to explosive new heights – and it all starts here!”

“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,” Guggenheim said of the series. “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.”

Beware the Planet of the Apes #1 is colored by Alex Gomes and lettered by VC’s Joe Caramagna. Featuring cover art by Taurin Clarke, the issue releases on January 3, 2024, from Marvel Comics.
