PLANET OF THE APES #18

“Rites of Bondage”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Alfredo Alcala

Milo and Armando run away after the incident with the police. Armando decides to have Milo sneak into a shipment of apes and blend in with his own kind as he tries to work things out with the police. So Milo enters the slave workforce and is processed at Ape Management. There he sees the brutal conditioning that apes go through to be taught simple tasks.

The second part of the Planet of the Apes glossary from H to Z. The answer is the first and last entry in the glossary.

“To Serve the Slayer”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Alfredo Alcala

So Milo continues his training and passes. He is sent to auction where he is bought by Governor Breck. It is here that he chooses his name from a book offered by Breck. So he is now Caesar. Armando is about to be interrogated using the Authenticator. A machine that detects a lie. He panics and jumps out a window to his death.

So the dreaded deadline mean once again they doubled up the movie adaptations. The adaptations continue to be very well done. I am not sure about the economic feasibility of having ape slaves. Seems like a lot of expense to train someone to do simple tasks. An effective story but not realistic.
