DC Comics and Boom Studios have teamed up to bring comic book fans a brand new crossover. Planet of the Apes is one of my favorite sci-fi franchises ever, so picking this up was a no-brainer. On top of that, I personally could not resist picking up the variant. Since I’m such a big Apes fan and I love that classic Green Lantern cover, I just had to have it. As far as the art on this cover it easily gets 5 stars. The cover shown is from cover E.
Planet of the Apes Green Lantern takes place shortly after the events of the original film. As of the first issue the story centers around Cornelius, Nova and Green Lantern Jordan. The first issue was very short, so if you’re not a hardcore Planet of the Apes fan I would recommend waiting for the trade. That’s not to say that the first issue wasn’t good. When it comes down to the bottom line it ended with a decent cliffhanger. Overall, I give the first issue 3.5 out of 5 stars.
