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!

This comic may serve to add a few more links with Godzilla, as some scenes are set in 1995 and 2012, and Ishiro Serizawa is even name-dropped at one point.

I can't wait. I really want to see Kong's parents.

Wow! Great news for theater-lovers! We had many awful examples when movies were shot after plays and vise versa. Hope this will be an exception and I am definitely going to view it. Any volunteers to make my thesis on theater art?

Great ! To see the white dress on a bride, we'll have to wait until the nineteenth century. This reappearance will be linked to the rooting of the Republic and to the premise of the separation of the church and the state and the secularization of society. Wearing a robe pour mariage invité, one wishes to affirm its virginity and purity with the blessing of the religious bodies. Thus, they do not lose their influence despite the societal changes that are beginning to operate.
