Many times over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of reading and reviewing a number of essay collections published by the Sequart Research & Literacy Organization. Sequart specializes in analytical explorations of popular culture figures, especially characters like Batman and the X-men who have roles in both comics and on screen as well as sci fi phenomena like Star Trek in their comic incarnations.

Excellent book, great fun to read. Essays on all manner of ancillary POTA books, shows, cartoon, theater, music, and a host of other little known parts of the cannon. A treasure trove!

This astonishing compilation of essays will open your ape mind to amazing possibilities and expand your comprehension on the decades-old franchise.

The essays range all the way from the original novel, its French author, the development of the movies, the expansion to TV, the innumerable novels, etc. (For ape-related comics see instead "The Sacred Scrolls: Comics on The Planet of the Apes")

Also covered are the precursors, spinoffs, parodies, live action shows, and many many more subjects.
