    Thanks! I love both characters immensely, having seen all of their films. I'm highly anticipating GODZILLA VS. KONG in March 2020.

    Kong of Skull Island 2018 Special #1


    Paul Allor (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Dan McDaid (Big Trouble in Little China, Judge Dredd) present a new look at the mysterious history of Skull Island. When an early Viking expedition washes ashore on Skull Island, they see only the promises of wealth in the island’s riches, and not the dangers. Decades pass as the Vikings attempt to bend the powerful island to their will — or die trying.

    King Kong: The Original Novelization


    The giant prehistoric gorilla King Kong is one of the most recognized images in our culture. So great is the mighty Kong’s hold on the popular imagination that his story–a gripping yarn of man versus nature, coupled with a fantastical update of the Beauty and the Beast legend–has been thrice made into a motion picture (most recently in 2005) and referenced endlessly in every medium, from books to prime-time sitcoms.

    Beneath King Kong’s cultural significance, however, is a tense and surprisingly tender story. One cannot help but be frightened by Kong’s uncontrollable fury, be saddened over the giant’s capture, mistreatment, and exploitation by venal showmen, or sympathize with the beast’s ill-fated affection for the down-on-her-luck starlet Ann Darrow.

    This Modern Library edition of a true colossus among adventure stories is reprinted from the original 1932 novelization of the movie script, and includes a Preface by Mark Cotta Vaz, the preeminent biographer of Merian C. Cooper, producer of the original 1933 classic film.

    Fully authorized by the estate of Merian C. Cooper, Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland's novel is a full rewrite of the original 1932 novel, bringing Cooper's original vision of King Kong back to readers and fans alike. Set in the early 1930's, it is a classic story of exploration and adventure, at the center of which is the "eighth wonder of the world" himself - Kong.

    King Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World


    One of the biggest motion pictures events of all time explodes off the comics page in this epic adaptation of Peter Jackson's King Kong! Director Carl Denham has one chance to make the film of his dreams - hire an unknown actress, kidnap his writer and board a tramp freighter for the mysterious Island of the Skull. But when hostile natives capture actress Ann Darrow, Denham and his crew will face horrors from giant spiders to bloodthirsty dinosaurs to get her back. Yet, nothing can prepare them for the revelation of the mighty wonder in whose clutches Ann truly remains - King Kong!

    LOVED the 1976 King Kong movie. I was 9 years old and saw it about four or five times at the movie theater. Jessica Lange was hot! My wife Christy and I LOVED Kong: Skull Island. Saw it twice at the theater and bought it on Blu-ray. My wife thought it the best movie of 2017. Got the Kong: Skull Island comics and also Kong of Skull Island. Great thread, thanks for starting it.

    You're welcome. I figure that Kong and Godzilla deserved their own threads. And since none were present, I took it upon myself to make them for everyone to partake in and enjoy. I'll be sure to add more to those threads in the coming months.
