Planet of the Apes - Dawn of the Tree People


Another POTA TV show-centric plot, another stunning Neal Adams cover. "Dawn of the Tree People" features pour intrepid astronauts Burke and Virdon running afoul of a small pocket of surviving humans who live in the swamps, who don't take too well to strangers, to say the least.

Like the other audio adventures from this series, there's a lot more excitement to be found in the premise than in the execution. Maybe when the Power Records folks were contriving their own Apes stories they felt more constrained than when they were adapting the movies, which featured nuclear devastation, lobotomies, gun play, and city-wide ape riots.
