King Kong, world-famous and original gargantuan ape, is the progenitor of an entire genre, spawning sequels, remakes, and countless other interpretations. You know Kong. You love Kong!
King Kong was created by Merian C. Cooper, and Kong of Skull Island is grounded in artist/author Joe DeVito’s groundbreaking literary property SKULL ISLAND. BOOM! is partnering with DeVito Artworks LLC to present this story, exclusively authorized and endorsed by the Cooper family as their official King Kong/Skull Island prequel and sequel origin story.
Two fractured and combative civilizations are forced to band together as they venture onto Skull Island—their new home.
From ALL-NEW INHUMANS writer James Asmus and PLANET OF THE APES artist Carlos Magno.
