For more than fifty years, the science fiction franchise has been telling its stories through films, comics, books, television series, video games, and toys, and in early 2023 new storylines will make their way to Marvel comics.

Planet of the Apes and Marvel Comics have had a four-decade long relationship, starting with the first publication of Planet of the Apes stories in 1974. In 1975, the full-color adaptation of the films, titled “Adventures on the Planet of the Apes,” was published,

“We’re thrilled to welcome ‘Planet of the Apes’ back to the House of Ideas,” said Editor-in Chief C.B. Cebulski. “The new saga in the pipeline is going to explore the limits of what this beloved franchise has to offer through bold comics storytelling, and we look forward to setting foot on this new adventure!”

Details have not yet been released regarding the comic book titles, collections, and reprints, or their creative teams, but will be shared at a later date.
