From 2001: The first issue of Titan Magazine's brief PLANET OF THE APES comic, based on the Tum Burton movie.
The series, edited by John Freeman, marked the first time that the POTA saga had enjoyed a regular slot in British comics since the strip was dropped from the pages of THE MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL in June 1977.
This series ran for only a few issues before being dropped. The film, although successful, failed to really spark the imagination and didn't encourage fans to rush out and grab the merchandise.
The bulk of each issue reprinted strips from the US Dark Horse comics.
The terms of the license meant that neither the strips nor the accompanying text features could feature the original five films/ TV show/ animation/ comics saga.
Across the Atlantic, the movie tie-in comics proved equally short-lived although the Apes saga has subsequently returned, from different publishers, several times. None of those strips have been reprinted in the UK.
The recent (excellent) revival of the film franchise has seen Titan return to the saga, albeit not with comics. They've published the hardback book EVOLUTION OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and a traditional done-in-one officially licensed magazine based on last year's film.
The back cover above shows some of the POTA merchandise that accompanied the film.
