With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opening tomorrow...
...let's look back at the flick from the original series it seems most thematically-linked to...
(You'll see why it's forbidden!)
If the comic looks unfamilar, it's because this is the never-reprinted Power Records comic adaptation of the 1973 movie.
It was packaged with a 45 rpm record that presented the comic story like an old-time dramatic radio show with a full cast, music and sound effects.
However, Power didn't use the movie's cast, music or sfx.
They used their own in-house people instead.
In addition, the story seems based on an early draft of the script.
And Marvel Comics did a serialized adaptation of the film for their b/w magazine, but it's almost 100 pages, so Power (which had adapted a number of existing Marvel comics into audio adventures) decided to do an all-new, shorter, comic...in color.
Packaged by the Arvid Knudsen & Associates studio, the exact credits are unknown, but it's speculated that one or more Phillipino artists handled the illustrations.
To me, it looks like Tony DeZuniga, who was doing work for Marvel, DC, and Warren.
