Publishers
Japanese comics (manga)
There are two manga adaptations of the first film, both entitled Saru no Wakusei (“Planet of Monkeys”). The first was written and drawn by Jôji Enami and published in the manga magazine Bessatsu Bôken’Ô in April 1968. The second was drawn by Minoru Kuroda and published in the manga Tengoku Zôkan in June 1971. Battle for the Planet of the Apes (最後の猿の惑星 – Saigo no Saru no Wakusei in Japanese) was also adapted into a manga by Mitsuru Sugaya, and published in a 1973 special issue of the magazine Weekly Shōnen Champion.[1]

Gold Key Comics
Gold Key Comics produced an adaptation of the second film in 1970.

Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics released a number of titles, the longest-lived being Planet of the Apes (published under the Marvel imprint Curtis Magazines), which appeared in black-and-white magazine format, and ran for twenty-nine issues from 1974 to 1977. Besides adaptations of all five movies, the magazine featured original Apes stories, with writing from Doug Moench and Gerry Conway and art from Mike Esposito, Mike Ploog, George Tuska, and many others. Articles about the making of both the movies and the Planet of the Apes television series were also a mainstay.
In 1975 Adventures On The Planet Of The Apes offered color versions of the adaptations of the first two films in five or six issue arcs, for total of 11 issues. It was written by Doug Moench.
The stories from the U.S. magazine were edited and were released by Marvel UK in a weekly title of the same name over 123 issues from 1974-1977. This included adapted reprints of the Killraven comic, renamed as Apeslayer and with alien apes as enemies. The British title changed names to Planet of the Apes and Dracula Lives, before merging intoThe Mighty World Of Marvel #231-240, where the title spot on the cover was shared between the Apes and Incredible Hulk — also being stories from the U.S. runs.

Power Records
In 1975, Power Records made adaptations of four of the films which were included with Book-and-Record sets, and also appeared in LP format. The company also produced an audio-only series on LP that featured the main characters of the television series — Virdon, Burke and Galen — in original stories.

Chad Valley
In 1975, Chad Valley, a U.K. toy company, produced 32 short film-based comic strips containing illustrated scenes from various TV series episodes, packaged as the Chad Valley Picture Show Planet of the Apes Sliderama Projector (very similar to the many Give-a-Show projector sets of the 1970s). These strips are extremely rare and difficult to come by, and contain many continuity errors.

Brown Watson Books
Between 1975–1977 Brown Watson Books published a trio of UK-published hardcover comic annuals based on the TV series.

Hungarian comic
In 1981 a Hungarian company published a comic adaptation of Pierre Boulle’s original novel, titled “A Majmok bolygója” (The Monkey Planet). This adaptation was written and drawn by Hungarian comic artist Ernő Zórád. To date, the Hungarian comic has never been published in English, but a translations has been made available on fan sites.

Malibu Publishing/Adventure Comics
Between 1990–1993 Adventure Comics produced more original storylines, set after the time of Caesar. These included a 24-issue monthly title, a one-shot (Sins of the Father), a Planet of the Apes annual and five original miniseries: Urchak’s Folly, Forbidden Zone, Ape City, Blood of the Apes and a crossover with Alien Nation called Ape Nation. Adventure also reprinted Marvel’s adaptations of the first three films as well as a four issue series featuring installments from Marvel’s Terror on the Planet of the Apes saga.

Filipino Parody
In the 1990s, a Filipino parody adaptation called Planet op di Eyps was serialized in Pilipino Funny Komiks.

Dark Horse Comics
The Dark Horse series was written by Ian Edginton and was a tie-in with the Tim Burton movie. Between 2000–2001, Dark Horse published a film adaptation, a miniseries, a brief ongoing run, a Toys R’ Us minicomic and a three-part serial in Dark Horse Extra.

Mr. Comics
Mr. Comics had the license until 2005 and released a six-issue miniseries, Revolution on the Planet of the Apes, by Joe O’Brien, Ty Templeton Sam Agro, and other writers, with art by Gabriel Morrissette and additional artists. The story picked up shortly after Caesar’s “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” and attempted to bridge the time gap before “Battle for the Planet of the Apes.” Further stories were slated for release, including the next planned title, Empire on the Planet of the Apes, but the graphic novel collecting the Revolution was canceled, as was the Empire follow-up.

BOOM! Studios
Starting in April 2011, BOOM! Studios will publish a new Planet of the Apes comic-book line, to be written by novelist Daryl Gregory, illustrated by Carlos Magno and edited by Ian Brill, with covers by Karl Richardson and Chad Hardin. Little is yet known about the storyline, though it will take place some time within the first five films.

5) Wiki of the Week –

Flash’s Costume Ring is a small ring with a spring-loaded opening. Barry Allen, the second Flash, used this ring to compress and conceal his costume while operating in his civilian identity. By thumbing a small stud on the side, the top of the ring opened, releasing the costume (chemically treated to shrink), allowing Barry the ability to change clothes at super-speed.

Wally West, the third Flash, also uses one of these rings. Barry’s grandson, Bart Allen, used a similar ring to hide his costume while he was the Flash, and another to house his Impulse and Kid Flash costumes (he does not remove this ring under any circumstances, at least not willingly).

Notes

  • Bart’s first costume ring, that in which he stored his Impulse costume, was a gift from Wally West, and a replica of Barry’s original.

Trivia

  • Green Arrow used the ring given to him by Barry Allen as a gift when he proposed to his longtime girlfriend Black Canary.
  • The Flash has shown the ability to vibrate and compress his molecules to actually hide himself inside of the ring when the situation calls for it
