During the 2017 Comic-Con International: San Diego, taking place on July 19-23, 2017, BOOM! Studios and 20th Century Fox Film will unveil two exclusive War for the Planet of the Apes #1 interconnecting variant covers.
The first exclusive cover, limited to 2,000 copies, features Andy Serkis’ Caesar and will be available for free at the Fox booth 4229. The second cover, limited to 500 copies, features Woody Harrelson’s The Colonel and will be available for $10 at the BOOM! Studios booth 2229. The covers, which connect to form one image, are both illustrated by Robert Sammelin (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern).
“War for the Planet of the Apes is one of the most anticipated films of the year and we’re excited to have our official prequel series launch alongside it. It’s even more exciting to team up with Fox at Comic-Con to deliver two limited edition covers for the inaugural issue, forming one incredible image that no fan of these damn dirty apes will want to miss,” shared Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios.
BOOM! Studios’ War for the Planet of the Apes comic – written by David F. Walker (Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes) and illustrated by Jonas Scharf (Warlords of Appalachia) – is an original story set between 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming film. As Caesar and his apes recoup after the Kubo-led attack in San Francisco, the military begins moving in, setting the stage for the momentous war to come.
War for the Planet of the Apes is the latest release from BOOM! Studios joining titles like The Woods, Klaus, Grass Kings, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, WWE, Sons of Anarchy, and Big Trouble in Little China. Print copies are available starting on July 12 at local comic book shops or through the BOOM! Studios webstore. While digital copies can be purchased from comiXology, Kindle, iTunes, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
