Skull Island: The Birth of Kong

Postby lhb412 » Fri Apr 07, 2017 10:58 pm

Like many a Legendary movie before it, Kong receives a tie-in comic. To be quite honest, these things have seemed a bit superfluous, but this one seems to have a nice hook: a return expedition to the island 20 years later that brings to light (flashbacks? investigation? asking one of the natives?) events before the movie, explaining how Kong became king (I suppose, how he became the last one).

They've even whipped up a trailer for it:

I wouldn't expect much from a movie tie-in comic in general

Of the Legendary stuff I've enjoyed this the most, easily.

Yeh, I agree - although this is the first thing we've gotten that was a monthly instead of already being collected. I'm not so sure about the development/twist on the final page, but we'll see where they take it from here. They got the tone and the characters and they arent rushing the Kong reveal, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
