    A fantastic monster story that has sumptuous visuals to match its epic scale. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    It's a good read and if you are an open-minded Kong fan this might just be the extended universe you've been looking for. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Aug 17, 2016

    Altogether this is a step up for Kong of Skull Island than the previous issue, with some great artwork from Magno which conveys the ancient world and delivers some major Kong smackdown action the previous issue slightly lacked, and strong writing from Asmus which further illuminates character while building out the social & political aspects of this ancient world – all the while ensuring there's enough action happening to justify the panels. It's not yet top drawer and essential a run, but it's certainly improving fast. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Aug 17, 2016

    If you're here for the human drama, you're out of luck. There's plenty of humans and tons of drama. But it all feels so petty when the world looks to be falling apart around our characters. If you want giant monster fights, you're only going to get a little of that. There are an almost comical number of panels where the Kong just sit in the background, waiting to get in the game. None of Kong of Skull Island #2 is bad. The highs just aren't as high or consistent as I feel they could be. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, the book's art continues to be great, particularly during the thrilling opening sequence. It's enough to make me want to come back for at least one more issue"hopefully with a bit less Days of Our Lives and a lot more Thunderdome. Read Full Review
