Planet of the Apes #2 - Mike Ploog art


Planet of the Apes v1 #2, 1974 - Wrongly accused of murder, a human named Jason and his chimpanzee friend Alex must avoid capture at all costs. Mike Ploog continues his pencil and wash technique, with pleasing results. Ploog's depiction of the characters and this post-apocalyptic world is viscerally entertaining. Like the previous issue, there are photos and interviews from the Planet of the Apes movies. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska, Mike Esposito and Bob Larkin (cover). This is number 2 of 10 Planet of the Apes issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog or Planet of the Apes issues.
