Classic Movie Posters Inspire the Epic Crossover Cover Artwork
In 2017, BOOM! Studios published a six-issue crossover comic featuring classic Planet of the Apes characters as well as a whole cadre of Lantern Corps members from DC’s Green Lantern. Favorite Apes like Zira and Cornelius became ring-wielders, DC villain Gorilla Grodd had a chance to shine on a planet among hyper-intelligent primates like him, and even the covers of the comics got in on the crossover fun. Below, check out these clever variant covers that took inspiration from classic Apes movies, mimicking the posters for Escape from, Conquest of, and Battle for the Planet of the Apes and adding Green Lantern favorites like Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Guy Gardner, Kilowog, Tomar-Re, Dex-Starr, and many more. See who you can spot in the posters below.
