    Un Cómic Más

    This prequel continues to successfully achieve the perfect balance between mystery, action, and science fiction in a dystopian future. The art is magnificent, capturing the essence of the original film, with a gloomy tone supported by super detailed art.

    Overall, Beware the Planet of the Apes #2‘s story defines the mythology better than the movies. The story by Guggenheim is excellent. The art by the creative team is stunning. Altogether, a story that makes this franchise even more visceral.

    Cornelius, Zira, and Nova continue their search for Lucius, only to meet entirely unlikely figures. A group of humans with strange abilities shed new insight into what humans are capable of, with both groups learning much more than they had expected about one another and possibly uncovering information that could lead to a reunion with Lucius. The visual style and the overall campy tone, which faithfully honors both the cinematic series and comic adaptations of the concept, help keep the reader engaged with this compelling world that is set before the original Planet of the Apes film. However, this second installment, much like the premiere issue, did little to excite us about what this storyline could uncover, as we're merely given a handful of scenes of characters talking to each other in a familiar setting, as opposed to offering substantial glimpses about why this story begged to be told. It's still relatively early in this narrative, so there's lot of potential for it to pivot into more exhilarating territories, and even being given a superficially entertaining installment is more than some series accomplish, we just hope the grand scheme of this story reveals itself sooner rather than later.
