This hardcover book from IDW reprints the 60's Kong comics illustrated by Steve Ditko (which he did before Marvel!). The first story is an origin, telling how Dr. Decker landed in Africa to discover a race of giants--and carnivorous plants. The seeds from this plant causes the growth. A year later he appears in London, along with a pet monkey, Konga, he has brought back. But Decker is unstable--and starts injecting Konga with the serum so he can send the simian out to kill his enemies. He has a crush on his assistant, Sandra, but she doesn't want anything to do with the old man. At first Konga gets the size of a gorilla--and eventually to the size of King Kong, when he's destroyed. I actually liked this comic version better than the original movie version. The rest of the book concerns a different Konga, one that was accidently created from the same serum after the death of Dekker and the original ape. Sandra and her fiance appear for a few issues--where they have some adventures on various islands. Konga survives a volcano, a nuclear blast, fights giant lizards, gets shrunken down in size to battle regular sized apes, and encounters dinosaurs in a hidden land in Antarctica. However, there's an inconsistency with one of the stories, which recounts Konga's origin and says he's the original giant monster. Still, this is an entertaining collection, particularly if you're a fan of giant apes and godzilla sized monsters. It has a similar feel to the early Korak and Kona: Monarch of Monster Isle comics. Recommended.
