A new electronic version of the 2004 release. In 1933, American showman Carl Denham returned from a mysterious, hidden island with a priceless treasure. A treasure not gold or jewels, but the island's barbaric god, a monstrous anthropoid called "Kong." The savage giant escaped and wreaked havoc among the man-made canyons of Manhattan, but within hours of the giant ape's death his body - and Carl Denham - disappeared. Twenty-five years later, the son of Carl Denham makes a shocking discovery that leads him back to the site of his father's greatest adventure and to the answers that will unlock the century's greatest mystery and history's greatest miracle. Authorized by the Cooper Estate and based on the original novel that inspired the all-time classic film. This new novel acts as both prequel and sequel to the classic fantasy tale, King Kong. Acclaimed fantasy artist/writer Joe DeVito and top fantasy and science-fiction author Brad Strickland join forces to make for an interactive visual-narrative storytelling experience unlike any other.

Drawn from DeVito’s 2005 illustrated print edition, passages of abridged text scroll manually over close-up views of lurid paintings and sketches depicting toothy monsters and buff natives.
