Posted in General
Dimensional Branding Group (DBG) and World Builder Entertainment are excited to announce a deal between DeVito Artworks and Dynamite Entertainment to bring a new line of King Kong comics and board games to fans worldwide.
For over two decades, King Kong creator Merian C. Cooper and DeVito Artworks’ KING KONG OF SKULL ISLAND property has offered the most comprehensive King Kong Universe ever created. More than just the first giant monster to thrill audiences all around the world, Kong became an instant cultural icon, indelibly climbing his way into the planet’s collective consciousness.
Joe DeVito stated, “The intriguing possibilities–the wonder, action adventure, mystery and more– sparked by Merian C. Cooper when he conceived King Kong have no limit. The ongoing unfolding of that universe is what DeVito Artworks’ King Kong of Skull Island is all about. This new adventure with Dynamite Entertainment is an exciting expansion of that creative exploration.“
