DC, Fox and BOOM! unite to launch Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern crossover comic

“We’ve been having endless amounts of fun collaborating with our friends at DC Entertainment and this new crossover only ups the ante,” said BOOM! Studios editor-in-chief, Matt Gagnon.

The worlds of Planet of the Apes and Green Lantern are set to collide thanks to a new publishing deal between BOOM! Studios, DC and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.

The talking simians of the Planet of the Apes meet the Emerald Crusaders of the Green Lantern Corps in a new six-issue monthly limited comic book series from BOOM!, set to launch in February 2017.

“We’ve been having endless amounts of fun collaborating with our friends at DC Entertainment and this new crossover only ups the ante,” said BOOM! Studios editor-in-chief, Matt Gagnon.

“Both Planet of the Apes and Green Lantern boast decades of entertaining stories and dozens of fan-favourite characters. The result of crossing over these two incredible franchises is an ambitious, epic story that’s brimming with one of the most enjoyable cast of characters in all of comics.”

Hank Kanalz, senior vice president, editorial strategy and administration, DC Entertainment, added: "We’re excited to partner with BOOM! Studios for another fascinating crossover, combining favorite characters in an epic adventure.

“A Green Lantern Ring seeks out one who is utterly honest and born without fear, so landing a Ring on the Planet of the Apes is filled with unlimited potential. The real fun begins when other rings - and other apes - get thrown in the mix.”
