King Kong and Planet of the Apes Crossover

This November brings a new crossover miniseries from BOOM! Studios. Kong on the Planet of the Apes comes from writer Ryan Ferrier with art by Carlos Magno, who has drawn both Planet of the Apes and Kong of Skull Island. The six-issue series picks up after the events of the first Planet of the Apes movie from 1968, with Dr. Zaius and General Ursus leading a group of soldiers to the Forbidden Zone where they are greeted by Kong. They travel to Skull Island to discover the truth, but will they survive the journey?

Ferrier said in an official statement:

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. 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.”
