King Kong Visits The Planet Of The Apes This Fall

Ape worlds are set to collide this Fall!

Boom! Studios has announced a brand new six issue series entitled Kong On The Planet of the Apes which is set following the events of the original 1968 Planet Of The Apes movie, and sees General Ursus and Dr. Zaius accidentally uncover a Kong during an attempt to convince ape society that Taylor didn't exist. That discovery leads to a second, potentially more terrifying, one: what has become of Skull Island during the time of the apes.

For those wondering, the giant ape set to be featured here is not the version featured earlier this year in Kong: Skull Island, nor the original version from 1933. Rather, this Kong is the one from Joe DeVito's Skull Island property based on the original King Kong novel.

Ryan Ferrier is writing the new series, with art by Carlos Magno.

"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 in a statement. "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."

The new crossover series hits newsstands this coming November.
