BOOM! Studios Reveals Kong: Gods of Skull Island One-Shot Comic.

BOOM! Studios revealed that they will be launched a one-shot comic based on King Kong and the people Tagatu.

Kong: Gods of Skull Island was announced as the studio their run-up to the Comic Con International: San Dieg. The one-shot comic series inspired by Joe DeVito’s Skull Island and Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong, will explore the relationship between the Tagatu people and Kong.








"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," revealed the comic's writer, Phillip Kennedy Johnson.






In this stand-alone Kong story, the year is 1912, and a wealthy humanitarian has traveled to Skull Island with the purpose of civilizing the native Tagatu living there. Although the Tagatu accept his gifts and allow his team to live among hem, they're devoted to their god... and the team soon discovers that Kong is very, very real.
