DREW GASKA TALKS ‘PLANET OF THE APES’ WITH MTV GEEK

Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes

Did you catch our announcement about our first prose novel, Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes? Writer Drew Gaska recently spoke to MTV Geek about the book, which will debut in late July.

Gaska, who is also the creator and writer of another Archaia title, Critical Millennium: The Dark Frontier, told MTV Geek: “Conspiracy is a perfect place to reintroduce readers to the mythos. It’s the story of an astronaut who finds his world turned upside down when he crash lands on the Planet of the Apes. It’s not Taylor, and its not a new astronaut doing exactly what Taylor did, as was the default for ape stories in the 1970s, but it’s about his fellow astronaut Landon, and tells the story from his eyes. And Taylor is still in it, he is just not the main character. It is both familiar and fresh at the same time.”
