After 2014’s Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island, Legendary and Warner Bros.’ MonsterVerse continues in the comic book world with Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, a new monthly series that delves deeper into the mysteries of Skull Island and the mythic origins of Kong.

Both a sequel and a prequel to the film, the story tells of a secret team of Monarch operatives returning 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.

With a dramatic narrative that paves the way for what is to come, fans will discover new revelations that point to the future of the MonsterVerse. The first three issues of Skull Island: Birth of Kong are now available in stores and on ComiXology.
