When King Kong famously fell from his death perch on the summit of the Empire State Building early in 1933, the question on many moviegoers’ minds was: Where the heck was Doc Savage?
For the tallest skyscraper in Manhattan was also the world headquarters of the famous superman-scientist known as the Man of Bronze.
Over succeeding generations, fans of both characters have speculated about a clash between these two titans of the Great Depression. Had Doc Savage been away at his Fortress of Solitude when Kong fell? Or had he been exploring some faraway corner of the world?
Eighty years after Doc Savage and King Kong first made their stunning debuts, these questions can now be definitively answered.
Will Murray’s Skull Island is a landmark exploration of these two great legends. Opening in the immediate aftermath of King Kong's tragic demise, this monumental epic quickly moves from what to do with the titan ape’s remains to Doc Savage himself recounting the hitherto-unrecorded tale behind the first and only encounter between the Man of Bronze and the Eighth Wonder of the World!
Set in the years following World War I, when both legends were young, Skull Island relates the astonishing tale of how Doc Savage and his explorer father sailed in search of their legendary ancestor, Stormalong Savage, only to find themselves among the first white men ever to set foot on the demonic dinosaur domain called...Skull Island!
