With the Kong of Skull Island preparing to arrive in theaters, BOOM! Studios has announced it is teaming with DeVito Artworks to bring us a comic book series based on the movie.
“King Kong is the progenitor of an entire section of genre fiction. It is truly an honor to be a part of that gigantic legacy,” said BOOM! Studios President of Publishing & Marketing Filip Sablik. “We’re thrilled to be working with Joe DeVito to create a comic series that is authentic to the origins of Kong.”
BOOM!’s Kong of Skull Island comic series takes place well before Carl Denham, Jack Driscoll, and the rest of the Wanderer’s crew set foot on the island. Two fractured and combative civilizations are forced to band together as they venture onto Skull Island, their new home, which they are soon horrified to realize is home to dinosaurs, giant creatures…and Kongs.
Kong of Skull Island #1 arrives in stores on July 13th, and will be written by Merian C. Cooper with art by Joe DeVito.
