I thought the Green Lantern / Planet of the Apes crossover was a big stretch as far as crossovers are concerned, but BOOM! Studios and 20th Century Fox have created the crossover of all crossovers as Dr. Zaius and General Ursus discover Kong on Skull Island.

Following the events of the first Planet of the Apes film (1968), Dr. Zaius and General Ursus lead a small group of soldiers to the Forbidden Zone to destroy any remaining evidence of Taylor’s time among them. To their surprise, they discover… a KONG! Now they must travel to Skull Island to discover the truth, but they may not survive the deadliest journey of their lives!

The six issue mini-series is written by Ryan Ferrier with art by Carlos Magno.

“There’s such a deep mythology to both properties, especially if you consider all of the amazing Kong and Apes comics that have come out in recent years,” said Ryan Ferrier. “With this series, we’ve found a coherent, meaningful way of having these two worlds and their legacies fold into each other. The implications of the Ape civilization discovering the Kong world are huge, and that’s certainly on the forefront of the series.”

After reading the description for the series, it makes a lot of sense in the direction Ferrier and Magno are going, and this could be a really interesting read.

Kong on the Planet of the Apes #1 arrives in November.
