“War for the Planet of the Apes”
Writer: David F. Walker
Artist: Jonas Scharf

Caesar plans to raid the power plant at the dam. He has explosives and rocket launchers. Colonel McCullough is waiting in ambush thanks to Donkey and his betrayal. At the Reno safari zoo a group of scavengers attack. Only apes are left lead by Bad Ape. The apes flee and a young ape that Bad Ape was taking care of is killed. In Atlanta the ape army arrives and frees the captive apes. The leader kills the last human alive. At the dam Caesar attacks and manages to destroy the power plant. Donkey though interposes himself between McCullough and carries him away before Caesar could kill him. Caesar then plans to lead his people to a safer place.

Well the final installment to this prequel to the movie. It seemed a bit rushed with several little story threads getting quickly ended. This was a good series. It gives a little background to the movie that was never explained and I now have a greater understanding to the events that lead to the movie. I am sure another movie is in the works and am really looking forward to the continuation to this new re-imaging of the Planet of the Apes universe.
