New Planet of the Apes illustrated novel coming in 2010

One of the problems with the immense scale of Comic Con is that you're bound to miss some really cool announcements from smaller publishers.

Case in point - Blam Ventures had original art on display promoting their forthcoming, fully authorized illustrated Planet of the Apes novel, Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes.

The premise for this first volume is telling the story of Colonel Taylor's fellow astronaut Landon - who we didn't see after the ape round-up until it is discovered later that he is in fact still alive, albeit lobotomized. An interesting unexplored area of the franchise - I do hope it leads to further explorations of our future world of talking simians.

You can read all about it on their website.
