Planet Of The Apes: Evolution's Nightmare

Here's a fave from Planet Of The Apes that we, of course, read in the above British weekly. It's Devil-May-Care Doug Moench's simian riff on The Defiant Ones, a rock-solid premise that's been adapted and refined many times over the years, and is based around the Einstein quote: I know not with what weapons World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.
And those new Apes movies? Wouldn't they've been better if they'd just got Doug to write 'em?


  1. Thanks for posting that, Pete. It's always been one of my favourite Planet of the Apes tales. And that cover's always been my favourite Marvel UK originated POTA cover.

  2. Yeah, that one sticks with me, even 40+ years later. It was published in the US in issue #5 of the Marvel Planet of the Apes Magazine.

  3. It's a bit of a classic for sure.
