Starwarp Concepts Adds “King Kong” On Sale Now

Now on sale from independent publishing company StarWarp Concepts is King Kong, an e-book-only reprint of the 1932 novelization of the classic monster movie, and the latest addition to StarWarp Concepts’ Illustrated Classics line.

Written by Delos W. Lovelace, based on the story by Edgar Wallace and Merian C. Cooper and the screenplay by James A. Creelman and Ruth Rose, the StarWarp Concepts edition of King Kong features six brand-new illustrations by pulp-comics artist Paul Tuma (Tales of the Green Hornet, Dan Turner: Hollywood Detective). The novelization also expands on the world inhabited by this famous monster of filmland and includes scenes that didn’t appear in the movie’s final cut, including the terrifying “spider pit” sequence in which a group of sailors in pursuit of Kong falls into a chasm infested with giant, man-eating arachnids.


In King Kong, Ann Darrow is a down-on-her-luck actress struggling to survive in Depression-era New York when she meets moviemaker Carl Denham. He offers her the starring role in his latest film: a documentary about a long-lost island—and the godlike ape named Kong rumored to live there. Denham needs a beauty as a counterpart to the beast he hopes to find, and Ann is the answer to his prayers. But what Ann doesn’t count on are the horrific dangers that await her on Skull Island—including the affections of a love-struck monster…


KING KONG is currently available from the StarWarp Concepts website and e-book distributor DriveThru Fiction.

“The exhilarating storyline adheres to the plot of the film, yet embellishes it with a deeper look at the events that occur in the movie.”—The Best Reviews


“The original novelization of King Kong was published in 1932…Lovelace was given a script and told to have at it. And that’s what makes this book so fun.”

The Thunder Child


“A crackling adventure that shoots along at breakneck pace.”

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
