Following the announcement of the prequel comic being available online, you can now get the series of the new movie on your Apple & Android device too!
In preparation for the summer blockbusterÂ comiXologyÂ 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 forÂ RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
A free online digital comic book prequel to Twentieth Century Foxâ€™s epic motion pictureÂ 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 â€“ a journey that will alter the fate of the world forever.
AcclaimedÂ PLANET OF THE APESÂ comic series writerÂ Daryl GregoryÂ and sensational artistsDamian CouceiroÂ (HAWKS OF OUTREMER) and Tony Parker (DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?) set the stage forâ€¦ 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 â€“ 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 pageÂ RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APESÂ digital comic book story debuts each Wednesday until the final 10 page epic conclusion on August 3rd, two days before the filmâ€™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 donâ€™t forget to check back often for more upcoming new releases fromÂ Boom! StudiosÂ and other great publishers. This summer the apes are on the rise, and it all starts right here onÂ comiXology.
