Planet of the Apes #3 - Mike Ploog art


Planet of the Apes v1 #3, 1974 - Entering a vast network of caverns, Jason and Alex must contend with both their gorilla pursuers and the underground mutant denizens. Mike Ploog's artwork lacks the clarity of previous issues, just as Frank Chiramonte takes over the inking chores. Still, Ploog delivers an eclectic yet fully engaging work. The scenes of a primitive arena (pages 22-27) showcase some of the artist's most creatively grotesque creatures. Rounding out the issue are photo galleries from the Planet of the Apes tv show and a Roddy McDowell interview. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska, Mike Esposito and Bob Larkin (cover) This is number 3 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. See also this blog's Ploog checklist or Top 10 Ploog comics.
