Dawn of the Planet of the Apes #1 (of 6)

Author: Michael Moreci
Artist: Dan McDaid

Bridging the 10-year gap between the Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes films, fans will bear witness to the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar’s civilization. While the apes of the world have yet to advance as a species, Caesar must find a way to unify them to one cause. On the other side of the country, Malcom must venture into the decaying Americas with his family to find a cure for the plague slowly killing his wife, Rita. World powers will shift as civilizations collapse and rise.

Michael Moreci (Curse, Hoax Hunters) and Dan McDaid (Mind the Gap) bring the hard-bitten world of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to life—dealing with both classic and modern POTA questions of what the true meaning of “society” is, and if being “civilized” is even possible in a world wracked with strife. Great for fans of end-of-the-world stories like 12 Monkeys, The Road, and Children of Men.
