‘Planet of the Apes’ Returns to Marvel Comics in 2023

Marvel will once again take over the Planet of the Apes, with all-new stories beginning in early 2023.

Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski said that “We’re thrilled to welcome Planet of the Apes back to the House of Ideas! The new saga in the pipeline is going 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!”

Marvel Comics hasn’t published a Planet of the Apes comic book since their Planet of the Apes black and white magazine ceased publication in 1977. The standard comic version, Adventures on the Planet of Apes, reprinted the film adaptations from the magazine in color and ended in 1976.

The Planet of the Apes license most recently belonged to Boom! Studios, who last published a series of graphic novel collections in 2019.

Details on any upcoming Planet of the Apes comic book titles, collections, reprints, (as well as a creative teams) will be shared soon.
