Planet of the Apes: Visionaries

Based on the original screenplay for Planet of the Apesby The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling.On the road to making the landmark science-fiction classic, 20thCentury Fox commissioned Rod Serling to adapt the source material.Serling’s first draft, which was drastically revised beforefilming, is a radically different vision of the franchise than theone the world has come to know and love.  Now, for the first time in any medium, that vision is fullyrealized as a graphic novel with Planet of the Apes:Visionaries from acclaimed actor/comedian/writer Dana Gould(The Simpsons) and Chad Lewis (AvengersOrigins). This is the world you know from the acclaimed Planet of the Apesfilm series, but with key differences - Taylor is Thomas, and ApeCity isn’t a crude, primitive grouping of huts; instead,  it’sa bustling and urbane metropolis filled with cars and skyscrapersand a vibrant Ape culture. In a world where Apes wear modernclothes, drive modern cars and rule the late night talk show scene,the arrival of one man will forever change how Apes – and Humans –view themselves.
