KONG OF SKULL ISLAND #1-7 (James Asmus / Carlos Magno)

« Je vous dis qu’il y a quelque chose derrière ce mur que l’homme blanc n’a jamais vu… »

Le scénariste James Asmus (All-New Inhumans) et le dessinateur Carlos Magno (Lantern City) ont été engagés par l’éditeur Boom ! Studios pour s’occuper d’une mini-série Kong of Skull Island, annoncée comme un prologue au premier film King Kong (et sans aucune rapport avec le film Kong: Skull Island prévu pour 2017).

Le premier numéro sort le 13 juillet avec une couverture d’Eric Powell.

[quote=“Asmus”]It’s got a very human story at the core. In reading the Cooper estate’s history of all things Skull Island, it said the natives (from the first film and writer/director Marion Cooper’s novelization) actually fled to Skull Island. There wasn’t much established about that time, so I was very intrigued about the false hope, horror and chaos that must hit these people when they discover their new home is teeming with dinosaurs!

But pushing further, I wanted to explore the way that fear and desperation creates a haze in which some people will use fear to grab power, while good people might make dangerous choices they could come to regret. And the Kongs are a big point of leverage at the core of these power games and key survival.[/quote]

King Kong, world-famous and original gargantuan simian, is the progenitor of an entire genre, spawning sequels, remakes, and countless other interpretations. You know Kong. You love Kong!

King Kong was created by Merian C. Cooper, and Kong of Skull Island is grounded in artist/author Joe DeVito’s groundbreaking literary property Skull Island. BOOM! is partnering with DeVito Artworks LLC to present this story, exclusively authorized and endorsed by the Cooper family as their official King Kong/Skull Island prequel and sequel origin story.

Two fractured and combative civilizations are forced to band together as they venture onto Skull Island—their new home.

From All-New Inhumans writer James Asmus and Planet of the Apes artist Carlos Magno.[/quote]
