Planet of the Apes: Visionaries cover by Paolo Rivera/Courtesy of BOOM! Studios.

The first Planet of The Apes (1968) film is an adaptation of the French novel La Planète des singes by Pierre Boule. On the road to making the landmark science-fiction classic, 20th Century Fox commissioned Rod Serling to adapt the source material. Serling’s first draft, which was drastically revised before filming, is a radically different vision of the franchise than the one the world has come to know and love.

Now, for the first time in any medium, that vision is fully realized as a graphic novel with Planet of the Apes: Visionaries from acclaimed actor/comedian/writer Dana Gould (The Simpsons) and Chad Lewis (Avengers Origins).

Planet of the Apes: Visionaries will be in stores in August.
