Planet of the Apes #1 (1974)

Planet of the Apes #1

Before Star Wars, POTA was THE 70s sci fi franchise – the movies, the TV series, the animated series, the toys, the comics. This comic features the first part of the original “Terror on the Planet of the Apes” storyline which extended throughout the Curtis Magazine run. It also has the first part of the “Planet of the Apes” movie adaptation.

Terror begins

Below is a comic magazine ad for the POTA model kits. My brother and I both got kits one Christmas. He got “Cornelius,” and I got “Dr. Zaius”.
