GvK: Kingdom Kong is an upcoming graphic novel prequel to Godzilla vs. Kong and sequel to Skull Island: The Birth of Kong written by Marie Anello, illustrated by Mohammad Yazid (credited as "Zid"), and set to be published by Legendary Comics on March 30, 2021. It is one of two planned graphic novel prequels to the film.

Description

A sequel to the graphic novel Skull Island: Birth of Kong and a prelude to the film Godzilla vs. Kong, the upcoming Kong prequel graphic novel, will follow a group of highly skilled military pilots gathered together on Skull Island to see who has ‘the right stuff’ to take on a dangerous mission into the hollow earth. One of the pilots, Audrey, is haunted by the memories of a monstrous clash with one of Godzilla’s titanic rivals that left deep scars. When Skull Island is attacked by Camazotz, a bat-like Titan, Audrey must to come to terms with her inner demons, and finding his home newly threatened, Kong must rise to face this usurper that would plunge the world into perpetual night. GvK: Kingdom Kong is written by Marie Anello with art by ZID (Legendary Comics’ Skull Island: The Birth of Kong; Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead; Spectral: Ghosts of War)

Development

This graphic novel was first alluded to at a Los Angeles Comic Con panel in 2019 when Legendary revealed the first look at the comic's antagonist: the giant bat Titan Camazotz. Mohammad Yazid, or "Zid" as he is credited, was confirmed to be returning as the comic's artist after illustrating Skull Island: The Birth of Kong. Another look at Camazotz was posted on Twitter during Legendary's MonsterVerse Watchalong event in March 2020. During a May 20 digital WonderCon event, Legendary confirmed that Marie Anello, writer of "Fifteen Minutes or Less" from the Shout Out anthology, would be writing the Kong-centric graphic novel and that it would follow an F-35 pilot as the main human character. Several panels from the comic were shown, revealing new images of Camazotz, Kong, the scrapped Icarus Tigris creature from Kong: Skull Island, and the character Houston Brooks.

Plot

Following the events of Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, King Kong clashes with the giant bat Titan Camazotz.
