Revolution on the Planet of the Apes!

An alert customer, Jennifer F., pointed me towards this upcoming comic that slipped under my radar...

Just read this press release from Mr. Comics:

by Jonah Weiland, Executive Producer

Mr. Comics is proud to announce that our first title, REVOLUTION ON THE PLANET OF THE APES has been chosen as an employee pick of the month in the Diamond catalogue.
The issue is currently being solicited in the latest issue of Previews and goes on sale in December.
With scripts by three time Eisner Award winning writer Ty Templeton and ROBOCOP: PRIME DIRECTIVES screenwriter Joe O'Brien, the series marks a return to the comic racks of the classic Planet of the Apes characters, Caesar, Zaius, Cornelius, Taylor, Aldo and the rest.

Beautifully rendered in full colour, each issue contains at least two stories by artists such as Salgood Sam (Sea of Red), Tom Fowler (Green Arrow), Attila (Beowulf), and Bernie Mireault (The Jam, Grendel), with dramatic painted covers by Denis Rodier (Superman).
For those interested in the series, but can't wait until December to read it, a free story is available at the Mr. Comics homepage at as well as sample pages from the first three issues, and previews of Mr. Comics other future projects by Dan Slott (She Hulk, The Thing) James Fry (Sword of Dracula) and Marcus Moore (Hoverboy).
We look forward to joining the comic racks with REVOLUTION ON THE PLANET OF THE APES in December, and hope to be entertaining comics readers for many years to come.
Steve Valentine, publisher.

Needless to say, Comix Connection will have this comic available when it ships!
