Marvel Comics released a number of titles, the longest-lived being Planet of the Apes (published under the Marvel imprint Curtis Magazines), which appeared in black-and-white magazine format, and ran for twenty-nine issues from 1974 to 1977. Besides adaptations of all five movies, the magazine featured original Apes stories, with writing from Doug Moench and Gerry Conway and art from Mike Esposito, Mike Ploog, George Tuska, and many others. Articles about the making of both the movies and the Planet of the Apes television series were also a mainstay.

In 1975 Adventures On The Planet Of The Apes offered color versions of the adaptations of the first two films in five or six issue arcs, for total of 11 issues. It was written by Doug Moench.

The stories from the U.S. magazine were edited and were released by Marvel UK in a weekly title of the same name over 123 issues from 1974-1977. This included adapted reprints of the Killraven comic, renamed as Apeslayer and with alien apes as enemies. The British title changed names to Planet of the Apes and Dracula Lives, before merging intoThe Mighty World Of Marvel #231-240, where the title spot on the cover was shared between the Apes and Incredible Hulk - also being stories from the U.S. runs.
