Kong on skull island meets the planet of the apes, that’s exactly what this is. This series was a fitting way to kick off this franchises 50th anniversary. Thus far Dr. Zaius, Cornelius, Dr. Zira, General Ursus and his ape army venture into the forbidden zone. Once there they discovered a dead giant ape thus piquing their curiosity of what else might be on this island in the zone. Once there they discover all manner of creatures including human natives on Skull Island and the last surviving Kong! Kong is taken in by the ape army as they all seek to learn more about these mysterious creatures of Skull Island. What nefarious agendas do Zaius, and Ursus have in mind for the inhabitants of this mysterious island, only time will tell? The only way for you to know is to read this incredible 6 issue mini-series.
Ryan Ferrier (GI Joe vs The Six Million Dollar Man) is writing this series with the passion of a devoted fan. As he pays painstaking attention to the rich history of this franchise. He’s woven such an elaborate tale intertwining the mystery and lore of skull island into the Planet of the Apes mythos. This story is so good when I read it I actually heard the actors voices when their characters had lines. In one word this story has been magical.
Carlos Magno illustrated this book with a hand on colors by Alex Guimaraes. Carlos has also done the connecting covers for this series as well. This art is amazing you just won’t believe how gorgeous these images truly are. The detail on every page is astonishing. I felt like I was right there alongside these characters that I’ve watched and read about for years. Art wise this is my favorite book this year.
Every book in this series is just so good it’s like comic book perfection. I usually don’t go in for variant covers, but how can you not want the connecting covers from Carlos Mango! All six issues make this huge larger than life poster image embodying this series.The only thing I don’t like in this series is that it’ll be over in just two more issues.So grant yourself a wish and read this mini-series. Kong on the Planet of the Apes #4 is on shelves now!
