There have been multiple comics series set on the Planet of the Apes.

Creator/MarvelComics released the first "Apes" comics, with a 24 issue-long black & white serial in 1974 called, simply, ''Planet of the Apes''; this comic featured a mixture of both adaptations of the five films and original stories. Marvel subsequently did a colored comic adaptation of the first two movies titled ''Adventures on the Planet of the Apes''.

Malibu Publishing, by way of a division called Adventure Comics, produced multiple Apes comics between 1990 and 1993, some 50 issues in told. These consisted of a 24-issue "Planet of the Apes" monthly issue series, a one-shot titled ''Sins of the Father'', a Planet of the Apes annual and five original mini-series: ''Urchak's Folly'', ''Forbidden Zone'', ''Ape City'', ''Blood of the Apes'', and a crossover with Series/AlienNation called ''Ape Nation''. All of these stories were original pieces, set after the time of Caesar. Adventure also reprinted Marvel's adaptations of the first three films as well as a four-issue mini-series featuring installments from Marvel's Terror on the Planet of the Apes saga.

The largest continuing publisher of "Apes" comics remains Boom!, which has published multiple serials set in both the original continuity and the 2011 reboot continuity.

Boom's Classic Continuity stories start with "Planet of the Apes (2011)", a 16-issue serial set in the continuity of the original five films, but taking place 500 years before the events of the 1968 film. The storyline from this serial was continued in Planet of the Apes Annual #1, then furthered in Planet of the Apes Special #1, then furthered again in Planet of the Apes Spectacular #1, and finally wrapped up in Planet of the Apes Giant #1.

The next entry in Boom's Classic Continuity "Apes" comic was the four-issue mini-series ''Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes'', set 20 years before the 1968 film, ad followed up by the second mini-series ''Exile on the Planet of the Apes'', set two years after ''Betrayal''.

This was then followed by ''Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm'', set eight years prior to the 1968 film and blending characters from the film with those from ''Betrayal'' and ''Exile''.

In the Reboot continuity, Boom! created both a prequel to 2011's ''Rise'' and a 6-issue adaptation of 2014's ''Dawn''. Most notably so far, they created the wholely original ''Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Contagion'', which bridges the gap between the first two films of the Reboot continuity.

Boom! has also put out fourcrossover serials involving the original continuity: ''Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive'', ''Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern'', ''Kong on the Planet of the Apes'', and ''Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes''.

** ''Planet of the Apes[=/=]ComicBook/GreenLantern'' is, well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In the DC Continuity, "Ape-Earth" is a closed off, temporally looped, parallel timeline in which superheroes never existed and man ultimately devolved himself, allowed apes to conquer, and then destroyed the planet. This made it useful to the Guardians of the Universe as a dumping zone for the Universal Ring, a GoneHorriblyRight experimental ring that grants its bearer the ability to draw power from the entire emotional spectrum.
** ''The Primate Directive'' is a crossover between the 2nd film and ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', involving the Enterprise's crew trying to stop a Klingon named Kor who has crossed into the Apesverse through a wormhole and seeks to conquer the apes as Klingon subordinates. In the end, the Enterprise gets their Klingon, but fails to prevent the destruction of the Planet of the Apes by the cobalt bomb, leading to them returning to their own universe.

The franchise, as an allegory of human evolution and hubris, centers on a role-reversal premise in which humanity's fall leads the great apes to evolve into a dominant, thriving, highly-intelligent civilization, in which humans are now the animals in cages.
