In this stand-alone Kong story, the year is 1912, and a wealthy humanitarian has travelled 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 them, they're devoted to their god...and the team soon discovers that Kong is very, very real.

    Gods of Skull Island carefully skirts the edges of the troubling history of colonialism. Not aggrandizing the explorers, but not making the story into a specific critique either. While introducing religious conversion and the exploitation of indigenous peoples, the creators leave space for the reader to draw their own conclusions. Though that conclusion may be that some of these topics should have been addressed. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 20, 2017

    However, for its few faults, Kong: Gods of Skull Island is an excellent take on the story of King Kong. Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson put together an excellent story here. It has interesting characters and a fresh take on the source material. The art is great, and the action is exciting once it gets started. I highly recommend it, though the $7.99 price tag is still pretty rough. Read Full Review
