BOOM!, Fox bring 'Apes' comic prelude online

Blending the line between the silver screen and the comics pages, publisher BOOM! Studios is publishing a prelude to the upcoming prequel to "Planet of the Apes" to give would-be viewers a leg up on the film's premise.
The publisher, in conjunction with 20th Century Fox, said Wednesday that it will publish an online-only 10-page prelude that lays the groundwork for the story in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," with weekly installments through Aug. 3, just two days before the film starring James Franco is released.

Apes have proven popular for Los Angeles-based BOOM!, which launched a new ongoing series based on "Planet of the Apes" this year that sold out.
"It's incredibly exciting to be a part of a new dynasty with one of the most beloved science fiction franchises of all time" said Ross Richie, BOOM! Founder and chief executive.
"We're proud to be working closely with Fox to tell a prelude story in the fantastic and story-rich world of the `Rise of the Planet of the Apes' franchise," he said. "From what I've already read and seen, I can tell you that the online prelude will be exploding with enough excitement and surprises to whet the appetites of Apes fans new and old."
