An assassination tears through the fabric of both Ape and Human societies. In the chaotic aftermath, Ape forces begin arming themselves. Prepare yourself for the explosive results as Ape and Human forces clash!

This series takes place 1,200 years before a man named Taylor fell from the stars as a prequel to all of the movies from the original franchise film, yet after the uprising of San Francisco. Behind three separate covers this comic picks up after #1, when the balance of harmony shifts. After the death of the law giver, a guilty criminal must be released to seek out the assassin in skintown when the city guard has failed to find any suspects.

Revolution and old weapons are afoot.

The felon, Nix, assembles his troops and provides a speech, “Humans aren’t inferior–they’re just different. And not allt hat damn different. Don’t men have hearts and hands and brains? Stab ‘em and don’t they bleed?” A little homage to Heston and Shakespeare.

On the human side of the comic, details about the cults, religions, and beliefs held by humans are given light and details. The humans do not worship a bomb, but instead what the bomb represents. “Sic semper tyrannis” as a the cry of revolution is a nice touch.

Take a peek. Then discuss the comic on the Pryde Forum.
