1st printing. Written by BRAD STRICKLAND. Art by JOE DEVITO. In 1933, American showman Carl Denham returned from a mysterious, hidden island with a priceless treasure. A treasure not gold or jewels, but the island's barbaric god, a monstrous anthropoid called "Kong." The savage giant escaped and wreaked havoc among the man-made canyons of Manhattan, but within hours of the giant ape's death plummet from the peak of the Empire State Building, his body-and Carl Denham-disappeared. Twenty-five years later, the son of Carl Denham makes a shocking discovery that leads him back to the site of his father's greatest adventure and to the answers that will unlock the century's greatest mystery and history's greatest miracle. Authorized by the Cooper Estate and based on the original novel that inspired the all-time classic film, Kong: King of Skull Island is a lavishly illustrated, all-new novel that acts as both prequel and sequel to the classic fantasy tale, King Kong. Acclaimed fantasy artist Joe DeVito and top fantasy and science-fiction writer Brad Strickland join. Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11 1/2-in., 170 pages, Text (with Full Color Chapter Illustrations).
