Marvel Comics Launches New Imprint for 20th Century Studios This April

The previously announced Planet of the Apes comics will kick off a new imprint at Marvel Comics dedicated to 20th Century Studios’ properties.

If you’re a fan of Aliens, Predators, and Planet of the Apes comics you’re in luck. Today, Marvel announced (via The Hollywood Reporter) the launch of a new 20th Century Studios imprint. The imprint will focus on stories from the various studios’ movies going forward.

While Alien and Predator have already been given new comic series from Marvel (the Predator one whips by the way), this April’s new Planet of the Apes series will mark the “official” launch of the new imprint. Marvel Comics editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski made this statement on the announcement:

“Ever since we announced our Alien and Predator comics, we hoped to create a special space within our comics line to go even bigger and bolder and keep building on the iconic moments from these properties that we all know and love. This 20th Century Studios comics imprint, in collaboration with our friends at 20th Century Studios, is the perfect way to do that. And now that we’re bringing back Planet of the Apes again through classic comic book storytelling, we are absolutely thrilled to officially launch this imprint for the fans, and we’re all honored to expand upon it in the coming months.”

I’m pretty thrilled with this, and eager to see what else they produce down the line. Seeing these franchises get continued life in comic form is neat and bodes well for the future. As for other movies/IP we might see…who knows. James Cameron’s Avatar currently has comics produced, but they’re through Dark Horse Comics. Perhaps one day Marvel will take over that license as well.

Either way, bring me that new Planet of the Apes comic next month!
