Planet of the Apes #11 - Mike Ploog art


Planet of the Apes v1 #11, 1975 - Escorted by Alex and Jason, the Lawgiver returns to the city to quell the violence and re-establish peace. Mike Ploog also returns to the traditional pencil and ink approach, continuing the storyline from issue #8. Although higher contrast, greytones nicely add dimension to characters and settings. Ploog's opening splash depicts a relatively quiet scene: an Ape City abode with discarded placards littering the street, suggesting a underlying tension. Completing the book is a continuing adaptation of Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska, Mike Esposito and Gray Morrow (cover). This is number 7 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.
