Alien Vs. Predator on the Planet of the Apes by PaulHanley Alien Vs. Predator on the Planet of the Apes by PaulHanley
The new issue of CHAMPION! Magazine is out, and now that their preview is up, I can finally show this- my favorite COMMISSION: IMPOSSIBLE feature yet: "Alien Vs. Predator on the Planet of the Apes". :D

All credit to my editor, Mike Cotton, for suggesting the idea for this one- it was ridiculously fun to write and draw. Aside from this "cover art", there's a whopping three pages of sequentials I made to go with this- and if ya wanna see them, ya gotta go to iTunes and download it for your iPad now. Also, as of this issue, we're expanding to Amazon Kindles, and I think maybe even some Android products. :)

Predators win because of the camouflage when the apes won't see them from their presence.

The apes would certainly be quite good hunting targets for the Predators, that's for sure.

Oh god, that's nostalgic! The style of the gore on the little chestburster. I've seen similar gore before in a comic magazine that I used to look at when I was a kid. I love how the guts look all spaghetty like, like it's not blood squirting out, but chunks of juicy meat! Like it's a hell of a mess, almost like dough except it's gory!

The apes will wrestle the preds, the xenos will harvest all human hosts while they do, the apes will work with the preds to survive, and when they're all almost dead, the preds will blow everything up. XD

This looks great, don't know if a pred would be as strong as a gorilla, but it is still wonderful. Good job!

Amazing and totally awesome crossover - and I thought the Alien Nation/Planet of the Apes crossover was crazy! I really wanna read this now! Does Commission Impossible ever take suggestions for stuff? Cause if so I could always suggest the odd one for them.

Appreciate the offer, but we can't even get to all the ideas we've already thought up. The next two are already set in stone, and I've got one more of my own that I'm hoping to do. If the well ever runs dry though- maybe! :)

That's ok, there's probably a ton of ideas that the developers have and it's getting them all up. Plus I wouldn't know if certain areas would be frowned on like stuff of the 'Big Two' (Ie. DC and Marvel). And my ideas would probably be very fanboy'y (eg. Madame Vastra meets the 1898 League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ala ties to your recent pic). But if you do need suggestions let me know! :) As to your own if they're as great as the last couple (this and the Sherlock comic especially) I'm sure it'll be awesome!

That's hilarious b/c the two you mentioned are the ones that WEREN'T my ideas. I was the one who suggested TALES OF THE INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. :D

The next one isn't very "geeky", though it does involve a cool TV show with a very loyal fanbase. The one after is one I thought up that DOES involve one of the Big Two. I asked my editor, but he seems to be cool with it, so it's moving forward. The magazine has a good relationship with Marvel and DC, and our stuff falls into a journalism/ parody area generally, so I think it's all good.

I'm more reluctant to touch Whoniverse-related subject matter, partially b/c I like having Commission Impossible as something that expands my portfolio beyond what I already do, but also b/c I'm so close to that and IDW actually does send me a paycheck once in a while (the same would go for Godzilla). Otherwise, I'm sure we already would've done one for DOCTOR WHO: THE TIME WAR. :D

Ha! Oh dear me! I haven't actually seen that film yet aside from Hitler's rant on YT but I'll try and give it a view at some point. Still, there's not been anything so far I have thought isn't cool yet, even if I don't know the show or thing so well.

Really, if I was to guess... X-Files? Warehouse 13? LOST? Oh, a LOST comic would kick ass. And yay for Marvel or DC'ness! I often wish the Big Two would be interested in doing crossovers again so I can read stuff like Dr Strange and Zatanna uniting to face Etrigan and Dormammu, the Green Lantern Corps and Guardians of the Galaxy combining to stop Thanos controlling the Black Lanterns or Spider-Man and Flash fighting the Rogues and Sinister Six!

In any case, nice to know that the Big Two are pretty reasonable when it comes to those things. Yeah, I often like to try and do stuff outside my comfort zones (so basically Who or Marvel) when it comes to fanfics. Would love there to be a Time War comics but I think it wouldn't be able to live up to people's expectations. Still if you guys wanna show a segment in CI that would be awesome.

This is truly surpising idea. A Planet of the Apes-Crossover never crossed my mind. Tell your editor he had two great ideas. The first one was the idea itself and the second one was coming to you with it. Your art makes it really great and i I'm really looking forward to see the other pages.^^

I dont say this alot but OMG. This is amazing, ive just been getting back into Planet of the Apes comics, i have some old ones based on the ill advised Tim Burton movie, but ive seen some awsome ones from BOOM comics that are prequels to the 1968 film that makes a very interesting expanded universe, it even has connections to the sequel "beneath planet of the apes".

And since seeing prometheus ive been after the Aliens and Predator Dark Horse Omnibuses. So this has come at just the right time lol.

Thanks! In a strange way, I think of this as part of a trilogy of epic mashups, along with my "Godzilla Vs. Cthulhu" piece and a secret third oiece that should be coming up two issues from now in CHAMPION. ;)

Though this was drawn months ago, I did work a PROMETHEUS nod into the sequential pages (there's also a big BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES nod). And I bought the first Alien/Predator Dark Horse Omnibus while working on this. Half for reference and half for nostalgia. I was surprised at how well the original "Alien Vs. Predator" mini held up- it really was an excellent piece of work.

Marvel did a PLANET OF THE APES series in the 70s which had some absolutely gorgeous painted covers (my fave is a pic of Cornelius reacting in horror from his spaceship window as the Alpha-Omega Bomb destroys the Earth below). I haven't read the BOOM Apes comics, but I've looked at them many times and they certainly look beautiful. I don't think I could ever buy one though, as I lost a (freaking brilliant) collaborator on a creator-owned project to one of those series. Damn you, BOOM! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL! :D

Ive been trying to expand my comic book collection which consists of less than 10 Trade Paper Backs. Ive gotten into the game late, didnt have comics when i was young Britain hasnt always provided its countrymen with geek culture like America has lol.

Ive mostly got stuff like Walking Dead and Transmetropoliton. I want to get into stuff like X-men and Green Latern but its hard to know where to begin. So many arcs so many retcons.

I shy away from those books for just that reason- they all go on so long they become meaningless. Also, a lot of those comics don't mean as much if you didn't grow up with them. The Claremont/Byrne X-MEN was amazing to read back in the early 80s, but it doesn't seem anywhwere near as mind-blowing now that hundreds of books (and cartoons and movies) have copied it. Still, every so often one of the DC or Marvel superhero books gets a writer who's so good they're worth following. I'll give pretty much any Marvel book by Brian Michael Bendis or Dan Slott a chance.

Some stuff I'd recommend, based on what you're saying: Y- THE LAST MAN; PREACHER; PLANETARY; QUEEN AND COUNTRY; ALIAS; DOOM PATROL (the Grant Morrison run from the late 80s and early 90s); DAREDEVIL (anything written by Frank Miller, plus the Brian Michael Bendis run from the last decade); Alan Moore's TOP 10 and BATMAN- THE KILLING JOKE; POWERS; HELLBOY; THE GOON; Neil Gaiman's THE SANDMAN; and Mark Millar's KICK-ASS and THE ULTIMATES volumes 1 and 2. And of course there's WATCHMEN and SIN CITY, if you've somehow missed those. :)

Im trying to sort of get up to speed with whats been going on with comics, cos the stuff u get today has conection with stuff i havnt read, like how somthing is connected with "House of M" or "Secret Invasion" or "Infinaty Crisis". Im not wanting to go indepth with it just want to gleen the basics.

Ive got the first TPB of Preacher, heard QUEEN AND COUNTRY was good, Frank Miller back in the day was good. Yeh Watchmen is the main one to have.

Thanks! And yes, the insanity is what attracted me to doing it. The idea's just so damn loco. The sequential pages I did are even crazier, since I managed to lay out a whole plot for this nuttieness. A very fun bit of spoofery, and yet also kinda badass. :)
