Kong Lives!

I love King Kong. The original. No... not the "seventies one", junior. But it always ends badly with our hero dying. So I started messing with an alternate ending where Kong got tired of the airplanes and climbed back DOWN the building, got gas-bombed again and knocked out --- and taken back to his island... Here is what I was thinking...

The conservationist in me (not to mention the Kong lover) approves.

sorry this might seem harsh, but speaking as a tyrannosaur... DEATH TO THE GORILLA!

i've always hated gorillas since watching king kong as a hatchling... the kong vs. rex fight was quite traumatic to me at a young age :(

cool drawings though. i just fear for the other rexs on skull island with the return of that mammalian brute!

And they all live ahpily ever after...

Wow- it's like the Disney version of the classic tale!

This is an interesting exercise- would you consider some additional blog entries around this theme? "(Insert movie monster title) Lives!" could be a semi-regular feature...

Interesting concept and great drawings! But after his date with a hot blonde in the big city can Kong go back to enjoying the simple pleasures of Skull Island?

To tell the truth, the big guy had to die but remember he had a son and I would like Hollywood to take that ball and run with!...makes me giddy!

Trouble is, once he's climbed the tallest building in the city it's anticlimatic to have him just get bored and climb down. I want him to grab a passing zeppelin and fly away. With Anne in hand of course.
