Now an ongoing series! As the Kongs spread through Skull Island and begin to inhabit the land on their own from the humans, they will face its true horrors.
The new storyline has begun and this book is no longer confined to being a mini-series. What does the series decide to do with this new found freedom? It plays it safe and decides to do some world building so that the audience can understand what is going on with the inhabitants of Skull Island. There is nothing wrong with this, as it still proves to be a very interesting issue.
Valla, a wild Kong, is roaming around and attempting to get accustomed to its new home. As the issue follows the beast around there is a lot of panels without any dialogue. Luckily, writer James Asmus is able to help captivate the audience by showcasing how Valla explores and interacts on Skull Island, including taking the time to bond and defend some triceratops. The issue offers a lot of exploration into a being who can’t speak and can only express itself through its actions but the task of exploring who Valla is as a character is accomplished so well it doesn’t matter it can’t talk.
The art helps to tell the story which is taking place in place of the lack of dialog. There are some very emotional and intense moments present in these pages. The art team of Carlos Magno and Jeremy Lawson really help to present a dynamic world full of both beauty and danger.
This series is still keeping up its high standards on its new path. The unexplored world of Kong keeps growing thanks to this comic. Hopefully, the countdown to the upcoming movie will only aid in helping this series to reach more readers. If it doesn’t this book still has a lot to offer even to those who aren’t fans of the Eighth Wonder of The World.
