Get ready, as award-winning publisher IDW brings Dead Man’s Hand, the first original collection of the hit Deadlands series to comic shops in March 2015!

Did you know?
According to IMDB, “During breaks in filming [of the 1968 Planet of the Apes movie], actors made up as different ape species tended to hang out together, gorillas with gorillas, orangutans with orangutans, chimps with chimps. It wasn’t required, it just naturally happened.”
In honor of this strange and funny fact, we have gathered and grouped all the variant covers for Star Trek/Planet of the Apes #1 for your enjoyment.
The Hit Digital Series Takes A New Form!
One of the most thought provoking and talked-about novels of the 19th century, The Island of Dr. Moreau challenged morals, science and identity. The groundbreaking science fiction tale has been the source for many adventures since, and this March IDW will release the print collection of the story that takes these ideas and conjoins them with the endless possibilities of the comic page: The Army of Dr. Moreau!
