KONG ON THE PLANET OF THE APES

BOOM! Studios has announced Kong on the Planet of Apes, a comic book series bringing together two of entertainment's biggest icons for the first time. Writer Ryan Ferrier and artist Carlos Magno team up for the six-issue series.

Here's how the series is described:

"Following the events of the first Planet of the Apes film (1968), Dr. Zaius and General Ursus lead a small group of soldiers to the Forbidden Zone to destroy any remaining evidence of Taylor's time among them. To their surprise, they discover... a Kong! Now they must travel to Skull Island to discover the truth, but they may not survive the deadliest journey of their lives!"

"There's such a deep mythology to both properties, especially if you consider all of the amazing Kong and Apes comics that have come out in recent years," Ferrier said. "With this series, we've found a coherent, meaningful way of having these two worlds and their legacies fold into each other. The implications of the Ape civilization discovering the Kong world are huge, and that's certainly on the forefront of the series."

Covers for Kong on the Planet of the Apes #1 are by Mike Huddleston, series artist Carlos Magno and movie poster artist Hans Woody.



BRIEFLY

DOOMSTER'S BOOK: Image Comics has announced a Nov. 8 release for The Doomster's Monolithic Pocket Alphabet, a 64 page, full-color, pocket-sized, hardcover book, written by Theo Prasidis and illustrated by Maarten Danders.

Here's how the book is described:

" In five decades of wretched existence, doom metal has evolved into a vast orchard of unearthly delights. Bongs, goats, amps and a lot of naked nuns, all collide into this stunningly visualized, whimsical, mature-rated gift book. Explore the genre's unholy rites with The Doomster's Monolithic Pocket Alphabet, the definitive illustrated lexicon of all things doom. Or be doomed!"

"Watching our beloved genre grow exponentially in popularity over the years, we decided to have a little fun with its cliches and inside jokes. The result is a really special, ultra heavy little book and we cannot wait to show it to the world. November is a time for Doom!" said Prasidis and Donders.
