Read 17 pages of BOOM’s ‘Planet of the Apes: Visionaries’ OGN

The following is solicit text from BOOM Studios:

BOOM! Studios searched the 20th Century Fox film archives and unearthed the first screenplay for the original Planet of the Apes (1968) movie, written by Rod Serling, and adapted this radically different vision of the franchise into comic book format for the first time as a part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the film from acclaimed actor/comedian/writer Dana Gould (The Simpsons) and Chad Lewis (Avengers Origins).

The first Planet of The Apes (1968) film is an adaptation of the French novel La Planète des Singes. On the road to making the landmark science-fiction classic, 20th Century Fox commissioned Rod Serling to adapt the source material. However, Serling’s first draft was drastically revised before filming the version of the film that the one the world has come to know and love.

“Fans all over the world have wanted to experience Rod Serling’s original Planet of The Apes and this graphic novel is an incredible realization of that vision,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Dana Gould and Chad Lewis have brought a new dimension to the story you only think you know, delivering a timely, ambitious and unflinching original graphic novel perfect for every reader, whether a long time fan or new to these characters.”

The OGN is due out in August.

‘Grass Kings’ team of Kindt, Jenkins reunites for BOOM’s ‘Black Badge’

A top-secret, elite branch of Boy Scouts takes on covert missions no adult ever could in an upcoming BOOM Studios series by the creators of the Eisner-nominated “Grass Kings.”

BOOM! Studios on Monday announced “Black Badge,” a new monthly series by writer Matt Kindt and artist Tyler Jenkins, starting in August.

Among their organization, the Black Badges are the best of the best. The missions they take are dangerous, and they will only get worse as their leader’s attention is split between their mission and tracking down a team member who disappeared years ago, presumed dead.

Per BOOM, “Black Badge” is a haunting look at foreign policy, culture wars and isolationism through the lens of kids who know they must fix the world adults have broken.

“’Black Badge’ is an idea I’d had for a long time — ‘Boy Scouts — but for real.’ Sending them on real scouting missions and into danger,” Kindt said in comments supplied by BOOM. “It’s an idea that started out as a joke with me complaining about how the scouts never really scout. But now that I’m writing the series, I’m realizing the deeper and (sometimes) horrible consequences of sending these kids out on missions. It’s going to be funny, emotional, and horrific — sometimes all on one page.”

Jenkins said the series “is another vehicle for us to tackle subjects and ideas that mean something to us. After the unrelenting darkness of ‘Grass Kings,’ I am very excited to explore a completely different world … a world with a tad more levity. This is going to be an adventure. A wild adventure.”
