BOOM! Studios and DeVito Artworks Unleash KONG OF SKULL ISLAND Comic Series
“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 (of 6) arrives in comic shops on July 13th with a main cover by Felipe Massafera (Green Lantern: War of the Green Lanterns) for the price of $3.99. Also available are incentive covers by Nick Robles (Clockwork Angels) andEric Powell (The Goon), and retailer auction covers by Ryan Sook (Superman: American Alien) and Paul Pope (Batman: Year 100). Retailers will have the option to bid on the Sook and Pope covers in order to secure it exclusively for their store. Ask your local retailer for details.
The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is June 20th. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use comicshoplocator.com or findacomicshop.com to find one!
