Follow the Rise of a Villain in Planet of the Apes: Ursus


BOOM! Studios and Twentieth Century Consumer Products are excited to announce PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS, a comic book series launching in January 2018 about the classic franchise’s most notorious villain. Written by David F. Walker (Power Man & Iron Fist, War for the Planet of the Apes) and illustrated by Christopher Mooneyham (Five Ghosts)—both longtime fans of the franchise—the series will follow the rise through the ranks of the ape who has hated (and feared) mankind the most, including what first brought him to the Forbidden Zone. This is the first project from BOOM! Studios in 2018 as part of their yearlong celebration of the franchise's 50th anniversary.   

“I’m a lifelong Planet of the Apes fan, and when I was a kid, General Ursus terrified me,” says Walker of the character who first debuted in 1970’s Beneath the Planet of the Apes. “He came right out and said, ‘The only good human is a dead human,’ and that gave me nightmares. At the same time, I always wanted to know more about him, and as a writer, few things are more interesting than exploring what makes a villain tick.”   

“Ursus, to me, is just an old soldier, with no more wars to fight,” adds Mooneyham. “He's lost a lot, and given even more. He's a super-prejudiced gorilla who's just looking for a reason to keep on going. Personally, I think David has nailed Ursus' character with this series, and I absolutely love that I get to help tell this story.”   



PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS features a main cover illustrated by Paolo Rivera (Daredevil), an intermix cover by Michael Allred (Silver Surfer), a subscription cover by Becca Carey (The Waves That Break), and a variant cover by the legendary Bob Larkin, presented in mock magazine cover format and virgin. This cover by Larkin, who illustrated over a dozen painted covers for Planet of the Apes magazine, was unused during the classic magazine run and has never been published before.   

“It’s an incredible honor to be able to show fans this never-before-published cover from Bob Larkin, someone who helped define the Planet of the Apes world for millions of comic fans!” says Dafna Pleban, BOOM! Studios Editor.   

Print copies of PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS #1 will be available for sale in January 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or through the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.   

PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including WWE, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Big Trouble in Little China, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Unboxing October's Loot Crate: Mythical


October's Loot Crate, "Mythical," boasted some of the coolest franchises in all of Geekdom. Buffy, Ghostbusters, Stranger Things, and Thor were all packed into last month's crate. All of them fit perfectly within the theme and sounded like another couldn't miss crate. 



The first item in the box was the monthly pin. The pin, boasting art by Gabriel Silveira, featured none other than Dracula. The monthly pins have all been pretty solid this year and have contributed to my new pin addiction. This one is definitely finding a spot on my backpack. 



This month's shirt features the Ghostbusters with an 80's twist. You can't go wrong with the Ghostbusters logo on a tee! Out of all the tee's I own, I (oddly) don't have a Ghostbusters one. Loot Crate corrected that issue with this crate!  



Being a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, I was excited when I found out that it was going to be a part of the crate. Unfortunately, it was a less than spectacular item. As much as I love "Mr. Pointy," a Buffy bookmark was a bit of a let down. 



This box gave us not one, but two figures! The first was an exclusive Thor and Loki PhatMojo figure. Timed for the release of Thor Ragnarok, this was the second piece in the PhatMojo line of exclusive Loot Crate figures. 



The second figure, and last item in the box, was an exclusive Stranger Things item! The SuperEmoScenes Diorama Figure features Eleven and the Demogorgon. 



Inside October's Loot Crate: 

-SuperEmoScenes Stranger Things Diorama (J Salvador/Loot Crate) 

-Ghostbusters T-Shirt (Loot Crate) 

-Thor and Loki PhatMojo Figure (PhatMojo) 

-Buffy the Vampire Slayer Bookmark (Loot Crate) 

-Dracula Pin (Loot Crate)

GHOSTBUSTERS x STRANGERS THINGS Reebok Launch Party Event at BAIT


As "Stranger Things" fans get stoked to binge watch the show's second season on Netflix, Sony Pictures Consumer Products is teaming with Reebok and BAIT for a Limited Edition run of the Reebok Ex-O-Fit Hi Clean model, featuring exclusive designs inspired by the 1984 classic Ghostbusters film.  

For the upcoming season, the "Stranger Things" producers teamed with Ghost Corps on the show's Ghostbusters storyline, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products put the collaboration together. As a backstory, we find Ghostbusters superfan Dustin has modified his Ex-O-Fit Hi by drawing his own Ghostbusters designs onto the shoe.  The shoes with that design will now be available for die-hard sneakerheads and fans.  



"80s nostalgia is running at a fever pitch, and excitement and fondness for the classic Ghostbusters seems to grow every year.  It makes total sense that in the fall of 1984, Dustin and his friends would be nuts for Ghostbusters," said Ivan Reitman, director and producer of the 1984 film Ghostbusters and partner, Ghost Corps.  

"We're thrilled to have collaborated with the 'Stranger Things' team and are so excited to team with Reebok and BAIT to make Dustin's customized Ex-O-Fit Hi a reality," adds Jamie Stevens, EVP Sony Pictures Worldwide Consumer Products.  

The shoes will be released first exclusively at BAIT retailers worldwide this October, and then at premium sneaker stores globally, including (but not limited to) Reebok stores in Japan and online, Undefeated stores everywhere, colette in Paris, Mita and Atmos in Tokyo, Kasina in Korea, and Juice in Hong Kong.  

A launch party to commemorate the collaboration and launch was held in Los Angeles.  



In addition to the Reebok and BAIT collaboration, Sony Pictures Consumer Products and Netflix have teamed up on a line of other co-branded merchandise, including Hybrid Apparel, Funko Pop Vinyls, and Microsoft Minecraft skins, which will be available this fall at select retailers.

BOOM! Studios, DeVito Artworks, and Twentieth Century Consumer Products Announce Kong on the Planet of the Apes

BOOM! Studios, DeVito Artworks LLC, and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products are excited to announce KONG ON THE PLANET OF THE APES, a comic book series bringing together two of entertainment’s biggest icons for the first time ever! Writer Ryan Ferrier (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Kennel Block Blues) and artist Carlos Magno (Planet of the Apes, Kong of Skull Island) team up for the six-issue series that promises to deliver an epic story starring the best-known primates in pop culture.   

Following the events of the first Planet of the Apes film (1968), Dr. Zaius and General Ursus lead a small group of soldiers to the Forbidden Zone to destroy any remaining evidence of Taylor’s time among them. To their surprise, they discover… a KONG! Now they must travel to Skull Island to discover the truth, but they may not survive the deadliest journey of their lives!   

“There's such a deep mythology to both properties, especially if you consider all of the amazing Kong and Apes comics that have come out in recent years,” said Ryan Ferrier. “With this series, we've found a coherent, meaningful way of having these two worlds and their legacies fold into each other. The implications of the Ape civilization discovering the Kong world are huge, and that's certainly on the forefront of the series.”   



Covers for Kong on the Planet of the Apes #1 are illustrated by Mike Huddleston (The Coffin), series artist Carlos Magno, and movie poster artist Hans Woody.   

BOOM! Studios’ Kong comics are based on Joe DeVito’s Skull Island and Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong. The publisher recently completed a 12-issue series, Kong of Skull Island, written by James Asmus (All-New Inhumans) and illustrated by Carlos Magno.   

BOOM! Studios has been publishing Planet of the Apes comics since 2011, the longest-running comic book adaptation of the property. The publisher has produced comics based both on the original and current series of films. It is currently publishing War for the Planet of the Apes, a four-issue series by David F. Walker (Luke Cage) and Jonas Scharf (Warlords of Appalachia), set before the Fox film.   

Print copies of Kong on the Planet of the Apes #1 will be available for sale in November at local comic book shops (to find a shop near you, visit comicshoplocator.com) or through the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies will also be available from comiXology, Kindle, iTunes, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

All-New Rocko’s Modern Life Comic Book Series Launches at BOOM! Studios


BOOM! Studios and Nickelodeon are excited to announce ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE, a new ongoing comic book series based on the popular animated show about everyone’s favorite wallaby! Writer Ryan Ferrier (Regular Show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and artist Ian McGinty (Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors) team to launch the first comic book in the series in December 2017. Each issue will also feature bonus short stories by different illustrators, including Tony Millionaire (Sock Monkey), KC Green (Invader Zim), and David DeGrand (SpongeBob Comics).   

Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filburt, the Bigheads, and the entire cast of O-Town are back, but all is not well. The town is facing a job shortage and Rocko is hit hard. With unemployment and potential homelessness on the horizon, Rocko’s problems are just beginning. But with help from his best friends Heffer and Filbert and his faithful dog Spunky, Rocko is (mostly) ready to take on the world (maybe).   

“ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE was one of the standout series for me growing up, as it really struck a chord with me in how similar it was to my own sensibilities and sense of humor, even at that younger age,” says series writer Ferrier. “Working on this series, especially knowing how incredible Ian is going to make it, has made me an even bigger fan.”   

Series artist Ian McGinty adds, "Fans are gonna be pretty blasted away by how well the new comic blends ’90s nostalgia with modern sentiment, and a Mystery Science Theater 3000-esque vibe that I find really, really cool.”   

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE marks the second series in the partnership between BOOM! Studios and Nickelodeon through BOOM Studios’ award-winning, all-ages imprint, KaBOOM!. The first series of this partnership debuts October 18 with Rugrats #1, from writer Box Brown (André the Giant: Life and Legend) and artist Lisa DuBois (Adventure Time).    

“Working with Nickelodeon on Rugrats and now ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE has been amazing,” says Editor Whitney Leopard. “We’ve been a fan of their shows for years and to be able to work with them on bringing these characters to life in comics is a dream come true.”   



ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE #1 features a main cover by Jorge Monlongo (Adventure Time Comics), a “look-and-find” cover by Bachan (Bill & Ted Save the Universe), and a variant cover by Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects). BOOM! Studios will also be offering a blank Sketch Cover for this launch.    Print copies of ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE #1 will be available for sale in December at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or through the BOOM!

GODZILLA: FINAL WARS (2005)

Godzilla 2000 (1999)  
GODZILLA WEARS A TINFOIL HAT. Did you know Godzilla is a UFO believer? Unfortunately, years upon years of reading about alien abduction conspiracies on the internet can't prepare the King of Monsters for what happens in Godzilla 2000....When a UFO is awoken from a million-year slumber deep in the Earth's crust, it employs a series of sneaky tactics (gene-snatching, reckless driving, and more) to give Godzilla a real extraterrestrial beat-down.
