There is a secret on the Planet of the Apes, one that is about to be discovered and change the lives of Ape society, perhaps forever.

Following a great deluge, Ape society is at peace but many are wanting. Even though Ape does not kill Ape, the Lawgiver's prime directive is not being honored in all corners outside of Ape City.
 
Trust is at a premium, which makes the barter system for food and other necessities difficult, to say the least.
 
Meanwhile, as no one notices, chimpanzees are on the rise.
 
How writers Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman keep these Apes true to established character while interacting in new situations is one of the wonders of Cataclysm.
 
Emotions are real and to the point with the existing circumstances as well as with the parent film franchise.
 
Artist Damian Couceiro continues his excellent work on the book, establishing himself with beautiful vistas, great facial expressions and individuality of character, something hard in this Ape-dominated series, I would imagine.
 
Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm continues to be a pleasure to follow.
