Comments: General Ursus is illustrated perfectly as a gorilla with intelligence. His being a soldier comes through. It is great to see a series focusing on the General that was seen so often in other series.
The look on General Ursus’s face shows full well his anger at being told soldiers will be trained as farmers. This is a look you have to see for yourself.
Ape City is low on food due to humans feeding off the crops. So what will be done?
This issue touches on the very first movie of The Planet of the Apes. Here we see how apes act to an intelligent human that can talk. They view him as a threat to their entire way of life.
You are left wondering where will this story go next?
