In preparation for the summer blockbuster comiXology is rolling out another exclusive digital comic tie-in. This time the apes are on the rise and ready to take over your digital reader device just in time for RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
A free online digital comic book prequel to Twentieth Century Fox’s epic motion picture RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The comic, whose story is set before the events detailed in the film, presents an epic tale of two apes brutally taken from the wild and driven into a life of captivity and experimentation – a journey that will alter the fate of the world forever.
Acclaimed PLANET OF THE APES comic series writer Daryl Gregory and sensational artists Damian Couceiro (HAWKS OF OUTREMER) and Tony Parker (DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?) set the stage for… RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, the first live-action film in the history of movies to star and be told from the point of view of a sentient animal – a character with human-like qualities, who can strategize, organize and ultimately lead a revolution, and with whom audiences will experience a real emotional bond. The film was impossible to make until the technology, invented for Avatar and now advanced to a new dimension, caught up to the idea behind the movie. A new free five page RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES digital comic book story debuts each Wednesday until the final 10 page epic conclusion on August 3rd, two days before the film’s release!
Keep an eye out over the coming weeks for the additional prequel chapters to find out what happens before the film hits theaters! Plus don’t forget to check back often for more upcoming new releases from Boom! Studios and other great publishers. This summer the apes are on the rise, and it all starts right here on comiXology.
