    This comic narrates the events hours before the arrival of astronaut Taylor. Excellent closing that connects with the first Planet of the Apes movie.

    This final issue of Beware the Planet of the Apes pulls off the difficult task of not only offering a satisfying conclusion to this condensed storyline, thanks in large part to a battle between humans and gorillas, but also offers insight into how the events of the larger franchise could be reexamined. Even if the book got off to a rocky start, feeling like nothing more than a way to capitalize on the upcoming Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes movie, the ultimate reveals of the journey helped contextualize seemingly arbitrary elements of previous issues and, while not directly contradicting or correcting any elements of the original movie, offers more context for unexpected decisions in that 1968 film. This miniseries makes not only a satisfying read for devout Planet of the Apes fans but also for newcomers who are excited for the upcoming sequel, while also being a rare book that only gets better as it goes on.

    The Fandom Post

    Beware the Planet of the Apes does some nice expansion overall but plays in the tough area of taking place in the weeks before the first film, so there are certain inevitable moments. Which is fine but I’m hopeful that we can get an exploration of more of the world in general and away from this specific place – though I suspect that there may be some hard limitations on what they can do with the license. There’s a lot of potential here but it’s going to have to figure out what it really wants to be in other books. This one was fun and I enjoyed the take on it – and the use of the previous works as flashbacks of sorts – and it leaves me hopeful.
