BOOM! Studios announced Kong: Gods of Skull Island comic based on Joe DeVito’s Skull Island and Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong.


As the sixth announcement in BOOM! Studios’s “Road to San Diego 2017,” a one-shot comic based on Joe DeVito’s Skull Island and Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong has been confirmed for October 2017. Kong: Gods of Skull Island will take place in 1912 and follows a “wealthy humanitarian” on a mission to civilize the Tagatu tribe living on Skull Island. There, the team will encounter King Kong.

Kong: Gods of Skull Island is written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and all 48 full-color pages are drawn by Chad Lewis. Here’s what Phillip Kennedy Johnson had to say about the story:

“Somehow, the Tagatu survived for generations at the bottom of the food chain in the harshest, deadliest environment on Earth, and they worshipped Kong as a living god. I always wanted to see more of that tribe’s culture in the films—specifically the ‘Church of Kong’ and their relationship with Kong himself—but that wasn’t the story they were telling. Now, it’s the story we’re telling.”

Kong: Gods of Skull Island will be available in October for $7.99.
