We've been working on this for a while now I'm excited to announce EXILE ON THE PLANET OF THE APES! It's a 4 issue sequel to our current Boom! miniseries BETRAYAL OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Corinna Bechko and I will be writing it. I'm busy with my commitment to SECRET AVENGERS for Marvel so the excellent Marc Laming is stepping in to handle the art chores. He's been doing a fantastic job so far. You can check out his blog here. I'll continue to draw covers for EXILE. Also, the brilliant Declan Shalvey is returning to handle the variant covers. Look how awesome this one is:

We're thrilled that Boom! and Fox are giving us this opportunity. The story is a direct sequel featuring Dr. Zaius and characters we introduced in BETRAYAL. Well, the ones who survive, anyway. The first issue ships in March, 2012. We couldn't be happier to get the chance to tell a second story and build on our corner of the POTA universe.

UPDATE: The Diamond code for EXILE is JAN120955. Remember to pre-order a copy through your local comics retailer.
