In August, Catch Up On Some Damn Dirty Apes

The first arc of Boom!'s Planet of the Apes may not be done yet, but they are ready to promote this summer's Rise of the Planet of the Apes with their trade paperback of the first story arc. You might be thinking, "What the hell you're only halfway through the story arc, why are you talking about the trade?" The thing is Planet of the Apes has been more popular than Boom! ever expected, so if you haven't been reading it already you're probably not going to be able to find the first two issues. Your next best bet is the trade. The deal is sweetened by the low introductory cover price of 9.99 and shipping in the same month is the fifth issue for a dollar. That's right; all of you that missed out on this series and thought it was going to be a cheap cash-in can pick up the first five issues for $11.00 dollars. That's a great value, unless you don't understand comic pricing in which case you'll have to take my word for it.

Here's what Boom had to say:

This August BOOM! Studios makes sure there's no reason not to get caught up with the sell-out smash hit PLANET OF THE APES comic series! Get your hands on the critically acclaimed first arc with PLANET OF THE APES VOL. 1 TPB for only $9.99! Then kick off the pulse-pounding new arc with PLANET OF THE APES #5 for only $1 – both titles shipping this August. $11 gets you caught up on the all new sci-fi smash hit written by award-winning novelist Daryl Gregory (DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS, and PANDEMONIUM) and drawn by the sensational Carlos Magno (TRANSFORMERS: TALES OF THE FALLEN). Both the trade paperback and the single issue will be on sale the same month as the highly anticipated RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES feature film!
But wait! They also told us what the industry was saying!
