My OCs consist of an Interstellar Space Marine who looks like Kyle Reese, Doom Comic Doomguy, Chris Redfield, B.J Blazkowicz, Big Boss and any other tough looking hombre you can think of
and a giant Kaiju that might as well be Godzilla
In light of yesterday’s news about a Skull Island movie in the works, I wanted to share a bit about this great book, The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island.
It is, essentially, an “art of” book for the 2005 King Kong film, using concept art for various animals as depictions of seen and mostly unseen Skull Island residents. The island is given a very detailed geography, history, and so on. It’s a remarkable read and one of my favorite things about the 2005 film.
I doubt it’s the case, but I’m hopeful that the new movie can draw on this already established “universe” of fauna.
I have this book! It’s basically a must-have if you’re at all interested in Skull Island.
It’s also just great if you want a biology book about a bunch of madeup monsters. I mean, that might seem like an overly specific thing for a person to want, but there’s an audience for those kind of things.
King Kong was boring compared to the creatures on Skull Island in my opinion
