Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 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. This new novel 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 forces to make for an interactive visual-narrative storytelling experience unlike any other.

Review:

"Anyone who loves King Kong with Carl Denham and Ann Darrow in 1933 and hated DeLaurentis' 1976 remake cannot help but love this new Kong book. Bravo!" Ray Bradbury

Synopsis:

Kong: King of Skull Island is both prequel and sequel to the seminal 1933 fantasy that introduced King Kong.
