Kingukongu no gyakushu / King Kong Escapes (1967)(Toho)

Image
Japanese film makers have been obsessed with "King Kong" since his first screen appearance in 1933. Almost immediately "Kong" inspired films began popping up in theaters throughout the land of the rising sun. Unfortunately, these films are lost and mostly forgotten.

A couple of decades later when Tomoyuki Tanaka was looking to make a monster film of his own after seeing "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" the idea for a Japanese "King Kong" film would be revisited. Most people never knew that originally "Godzilla" wasn't going to be a dinosaur at all but a fire-breathing gorilla. Alas it's true. Of course, that idea, plus the idea of making "Big G" a giant octopus, was scrapped for what would become everyone's favorite mutant behemoth, which ultimately proved to be a far better choice.

Who in the hell would want to see a giant …

BETTIE PAGE'S SECRET LIFE AS AN UNDERCOVER OPERATIVE IN 1950S HOLLYWOOD HAS BEEN DECLASSIFIED!

In this latest telling, Ms. Page is more modest than Ms. Blaise, but peels more than Ms. Emma. She out-vamps Vampirella, but she's sweeter than Honey West. She puts the mod in model, and the bangs in bang-bang. Now the world can know the truth: her classified adventures back in 1951 Hollywood have officially been declassified.

Writer David Avallone says, "Like a lot of people my age, I 'discovered' Bettie Page through comics, when Dave Stevens used her to inspire the ingénue starlet of The Rocketeer. She's such a compelling, iconic figure, with such a fascinating life story, that I was thrilled when Dynamite Senior Editor Joe Rybandt asked me if I could build a comic book mini-series around her. After a lot of research into the life and times of Bettie, I chose to put her in Hollywood at the start of the fifties and the beginning of her modeling career. It's all f…

BOOM! STUDIOS ANNOUNCES KONG: GODS OF SKULL ISLAND

Image
In this stand-alone Kong story, the year is 1912, and a wealthy humanitarian has traveled to Skull Island with the purpose of civilizing the native Tagatu living there. Although the Tagatu accept his gifts and allow his team to live among hem, they’re devoted to their god… and the team soon discovers that Kong is very, very real.

“Somehow, the Tagatu survived for generations at the bottom of the food chain in the harshest, deadliest environment on Earth, and they worshipped Kong as a living god. I always wanted to see more of that tribe’s culture in the films—specifically the ‘Church of Kong’ and their relationship with Kong himself—but that wasn’t the story they were telling. Now, it’s the story we’re telling.” – Phillip Kennedy Johnson

BOOM! Studios’ Kong comics are based on Joe DeVito’s Skull Island and Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong. The publisher recently completed a 12-issue series, Kong o…
