Reading Room MONKEY PLANET "Part 2"

Cover of 1st British hardcover edition
The diary of Ulysse Merou, journalist with an interstellar expedition from Earth, is found floating in space by other astronauts.
It recounts how the team landed on a planet in the Betelgeuse system discovering both primitive humans and a society of intelligent apes utilizing technology equal to late 20th Century Earth!
Captured by the simians, who don't realize he's not one of their primitive humans, Merou is taken to a major metropolis...
Written and illustrated by Ernő Zórád, this 1981 Hungarian one-shot adaptation of the original French novel by Pierre Boule has never been officially-published in English.
But, thanks to the fine work of Kyriee (Scans), Swatura Od (translation) and Avoros (scripting), we're finally able to understand this tale in English.
Thanks, guys.
