Derek Zane from the Kingdom story is now living the life of his dreams in the kingdom of Camelot on the island of Avedon. Only he feels he has a duty to look for the future astronauts so he leaves his wife for the mainland. At the raft he gets in a fight with a chimpanzee named Robin Hood who later agrees to accompany him. They ambush a chimp and take his clothes. Then with Derek as a human prisoner ride into the city. Derek is turned over to a Dr. Cassius who is about to perform an experiment on a talking human woman. Derek distracts the doctor long enough for the woman to escape and stab the doctor. Then the two with Robin escape in a wagon and blow up the armory. Only the woman is killed. At the end Robin goes back to the island while Derek stays behind to continue his search.

“SFX on the Planet of the Apes”
By Tom Sciacca

An article that covers the effects from the other four movies. Not much new or original here.

“Hail Caesar! Hail the King!”
Writer: Doug Moench
Artist: Alfredo Alcala

The final installment in the Conquest adaptation. The rebellious apes lead by Caesar manage to make it to the city. They start to burn the shops and manage to break into a gun store. They defeat the security forces and drag Governor Breck and MacDonald out for a fiery speech on the rise of the Planet of the Apes.

So it was nice to see they didn’t forget Derek Zane and his strange part of the planet he is on. I forgot they had this story and I thought it was a nice change of pace. Otherwise the article was bore and the conclusion to the adaptation was good. So I will leave you with the trailer to Conquest to the Planet of the Apes.

And his fiery ending speech.
