Planet of the Apes: Visionaries is a comic book based on the Rod Serling script for the first Planet of the Apes movie.[1][2]


Four space explorers reach a planet and find that they are on a planet is populated by intelligent apes and humans are primitive. Thomas becomes the only survivor as the only one who hasn't being shot or lobotmised by the apes. Dr Zira soon realizes that Thomas is an intelligent human after written notes that he was can understand. Soon Thomas becomes a celebrity as a talking human and explains that he is from another planet called Earth and wishes to return to his planet. Thomas, Zira find an excavation site which proves humans where intelligent and had a bomb shelter and even a talking human doll. The other human apes offer to Thomas the option to run away with his human female mate Nova (who he had earlier in the story taught Nova to speak and even serve tea). But refuse looking in the distance saying he can't return to Earth. Dr Zira queries why Thomas refused to leave after being shot but her answer is dismissed as humans are seen as primitive and in the distance is a destroyed image of the Statue of Liberty.
