The MonsterVerse continues in the official comic series.
Hitting shelves on April 12th is the first issue of 4-part series Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, which will serve as both a prequel and sequel to this year’s Kong: Skull Island. Set 20 years after the events of the film, the books reveal the origin of King Kong, introduce new monsters and show how the god-like primate has grown into an even larger and more dangerous beast.
A secret team of Monarch operatives, including Houston Brooks (played by Corey Hawkins in the film) and his son Aaron Brooks, return to Skull Island to discover the truth behind Kong and the island he was born to protect. In doing so, they unlock an ancient history of monster conflict, witness the primal war between Kong and an otherworldly ecosystem of deadly new creatures, and finally reveal how this lonely god became the last of his kind. Featuring new monsters and previously unseen Skull Island locations, the book gives fans a chance to see how Kong has evolved since the events of the film.
The comic series will offer new revelations that point to the future of the MonsterVerse.
