Kong: Skull Island is now playing in theaters and if you're someone who wishes to learn more about King Kong and specifically his new origins within the Monsterverse, then Legendary have got you covered, with a prequel comic series, much like the ones they produced for Pacific Rim and Godzilla (2014)! Written by Arvid Nelson, with artwork by Zid, Skull Island: The Birth of Kong will span four issues.
Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, will act as both a sequel and prequel to the new movie, as a team of Monarch agents visit the island to find out more about the giant ape and just why he's so dedicated to defending this particular island. Along the way, the reader will find out about the island's history of war between Kong and the other creatures on the island — and what made him king of all he surveys.
The first issue will land in comic shops on April 5th!
