As a follow up (haha get it) to my Fall Out Boy magazine, I decided to make an AP issue if The Followers had one. (I tried to make it look older)
Now I know this is incorrect for many reasons. Like the fact that AP wasn’t even around in the 70′s (would have more likely been a Rolling Stone issue) and that no one knew about Brendon but it’s just for fun!

I admit to not really liking the Bad Ape character in the movie- he felt too much like a cute comedy character, stuck in the script to lighten the bleakness of the end of the world (which no amount of comedy expressions will really achieve. The apocalypse is serious business…).
This miniseries- a prequel to the film- manages to make him a much more sympathetic character, and his final scene, before he heads off on the road that takes him to where we meet him in the cinema, is really quite touching. I felt that 4 issues was too short to contain the full scope of world building that the story was aiming for, but the rest of the plot threads didn’t need much work for me in terms of setting up the movie (many of these have had 2 previous films to build on, so you would hope there was minimal need for filling in the blanks). The little chimpanzee, on the other hand, really benefited from this extra development time, and I came away ready to give him a second chance in the film. Which is a pretty impressive feat for this comic, I would say.

and tempers ran hot as President Trump prepared to hold a rally at the
Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday evening. Crowds of Trump supporters
and protesters feuded in the triple-digit heat outside the event, while
many wondered whether the president would launch an attack on his
critics inside the Republican Party.
attempted to keep Trump’s fans away from the protesters, many of whom
carried signs that criticized the president’s response to the violence
in Charlottesville, Va., earlier this month. The dueling crowds did
taunt each other across fences and, at times, the lines were crossed. At
one point, a group of protesters carrying a sign that declared “F***
Trump” and one that blended the presidential “45” with a Nazi swastika
walked alongside the long line of the president’s supporters. The
anti-Trump contingent drew an angry response from the president’s
supporters, who stretched in long lines around the building that
reportedly included some Trump fans who waited outside since Monday
“Get back on the other side!” shouted one of the Trump supporters.
“Get a job!” yelled another.
The Trump supporters cheered as a loud roar of motorcycles erupted from a nearby street.
Bikers for Trump!” one said, referencing a group of motorcyclists that
formed during last year’s election to provide security for pro-Trump
of the protesters in Phoenix chanted “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist
USA!” Some also carried photos of Heather Heyer, a young woman who was
killed at a right wing rally in Charlottesville when a neo-Nazi
sympathizer drove his car into a crowd of protesters. Two police
officers were also killed after their helicopter crashed as they
attempted to respond to clashes between the right-wing rallygoers and
was widely criticized for his responses to the chaos in Charlottesville
as he blamed “both sides” for the violence rather than focusing on the
white supremacists who came to the rally. The president also empathized
with the rally attendees concern about the removal of Confederate
crowds outside Trump’s Phoenix rally also included several groups
taking advantage of Arizona’s “open carry” laws and brandishing rifles.
One group of camouflage-clad men armed with assault rifles repeatedly
said “no comment” as Yahoo News asked them why they came to the rally.
Another group with guns and camp had signs identifying them as the John
Brown Gun Club. One of the members offered a quick explanation of their
presence. READ MORE by Hunter Walker/Yahoo News >>>
