Comments: Cornelius, Zira, Dr. Zaius investigate finding a giant ape hidden behind the Statue of Liberty. The apes decide where there is one there might be more and they set off to find them.
The apes set sail and have a long hard journey. They finally reach Africa. They rest than set sail again. As they sail they are attacked by a monstrous creature from the depths.
The illustrations of apes give them a soft subdued appearance. The colors are soft as well.
When King Kong is shown you can feel his power. He is the King of his jungle. He is drawn as a massive creature of muscles and savagery.
The story does drag on some. on the finding of the giant ape and on the journey to Skull Island.
Seeing King Kong still alive and well in this future does create some interesting and thought-provoking ideas. How is it possible?
King Kong is drawn looking every bit the King he is. He rules Skull Island.
