Planet of the Apes #1

Adventures on the Planet of the Apes was a standard-sized 32-page comic book series published by Marvel Comics from October of 1975 until December of 1976. The series featured colorized reprints of the official movie adaptation of Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes which had been originally printed in Marvel's Planet of the Apes Magazine. Marvel thought that some customers would be more likely to shell out 25 cents for the colour comic rather than the high cost $1 for the black-and-white magazine format. The gray wash shading of the magazine was retouched (by George Roussos) using the conventional four-color process common to most comic book issues at the time. While the Planet of the Apes Magazine ran for a total of twenty-nine issues, Adventures on the Planet of the Apes only lasted eleven issues before poor sales forced its cancellation. The Adventures comics also featured new cover illustrations unique to their run.
