Daryl Gregory returns to the PLANET OF THE APES in this epic over-sized issue, featuring fan-favorite artist Diego Barreto (IRREDEEMABLE) throughout 32 pages of new story and art!

And one of my favorite comics of the year, period.” When the Lawgiver was assassinated by a human, Ape City fell into a vicious civil war. Ten years have passed since the horrific violence and a fragile peace is emerging. Voice Alaya has been deposed and awaits sentencing in Ape City’s prison. Meanwhile, Sully has begun to rally forces, both human and ape. Little do they know they’re both on a collision course towards an even greater danger…

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
When it comes to space travel, there are a couple of routes you can go.  The first is the safe route, which means it takes 100 years or more to put a colony on the Moon, which is a good thing, because everyone knows the Moon blew up in 1999.  The other is to seek out strange new worlds, and make a buck or two by smuggling spice for the Hutts.  The second is a bit more reckless, but can lead to so much more in the end.  Which brings us to the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week!

Who is more reckless?
