Once again a fantasy concept from STF: The Lost Issues has turned into reality! I originally had this cover slated for a couple of weeks from now, but I decided to move it up in the rotation due to the announcement that publishers IDW and Boom Studios are teaming up to present a Star Trek/Planet of The Apes comic. That sounds very cool, it will be great to see the two worlds collide.
The Apes are really on a roll - Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a commercial and critical hit, and deservedly so. I loved how the film expanded on the set up from Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and really turned up the tension. It did a great job of presenting realistic and believable motivations for all the characters, even the villains. The special effects were once again top notch and the directing provided a visual feast to go with the thought provoking narrative. I can't wait for the next installment!
