  1. 'Planet of the Apes' and 'Kong' is like Peanut Butter and Nutella for me. So great comic to cover, one I didn't know existed.

    Like you I am of an age so both properties hit me.

    The original Kong was always on the local UHF channels so I saw that one a ton. I had the Whitman Kong treasury comic.

    But an early memory is seeing the 76 Kong in the theater with my dad. It was being shown in an old-time movie theater, kind with the gold leaf fancy decoration on the walls and ceiling, a time when going to the movies was an event. We sat in the balcony! Something that wasn't in most cinemas that I went to. I was blown away.

    I love Kong. And even if the 76 movie was 'okay', Jeff Bridges, Jessica Lange, and Charles Grodin escaped relatively unscathed.

    As for Apes, the local channel showed movies from 4-6p every day and annually had 'Apes week', something showing the original 5, sometimes splicing 2 episodes of the show together. I ate it up. (Conquest is such a solid film, relevant as a race allegory even now.)

    This book sounds pretty cool so I hope you report out about the rest (assuming you have it).

    Thanks again!

    1. Definitely two great tastes that tasted ... Pretty good ... Together.

      Great memory about Kong '76. Thanks for sharing.

  2. And thanks for plugging my 'first issue = direction; second issue = infrastructure' model.
