Grew up reading comic books in the 90's. Marvel fan at heart. Hulk, the Midnight Sons, and Marvel's cosmic universe are my favorites.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

The origin of King Kong and the people of Skull Island is told at last in this exciting and beautifully illustrated book. Return to Skull Island with this new mini series from BOOM! Studios and DeVito Artworks, LLC. ComiConverse Contributor Mitch Nissen is here with an in-depth look at this latest issue.

Review: Kong Of Skull Island #3

As we draw closer to the new year we also grow closer to the release of Legendary Pictures' new film Kong: Skull Island and hopefully the start of a new era for the king of movie monsters. However, before Kong receives his big screen reinvention BOOM! Studios and DeVito Artworks, LLC offers us a brand new prequel exploring the original world of Kong.

In 2004 a book was released by the title Kong: King of Skull Island. That book was created by famed artist Joe DeVito who illustrated and co-wrote along with science fiction authors Brad Strickland and John Michlig. The book explored the events immediately following the climax of the 1933 classic film as well as Kong's past and his rise to being king of Skull Island. The novel paints a far more violent, gory, and terrifying depiction of Skull Island and the monsters that dwell there.

This new six issue mini series written by James Asmus, illustrated by Carlos Magno, and colored by Brad Simpson continues delving into this extension of Kong's world and mythos created by Joe DeVito taking the story back even further. Before the 1933 film, before the prequel story in the book, this series begins before any human being or Kong ever stepped foot on Skull Island.
