Welcome back Nerd Squad! Our good friends at King Kong, the broadway musical, have tickets going on sale today, so to celebrate we’re counting down the top 10 alternate versions of King Kong! The immensely talented people behind King Kong on Broadway are the same awesome people who helped create broadway hits Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the Spider-Man musical, so get hyped! The show originally premiered in Melbourne Australia, was critically acclaimed, and even called the first of it’s kind in the world. Oh, and they have a giant ape. So that’s pretty rad. We’re big fans of theirs on top 10 nerd, and they’ve given us a little preview of what to expect. The link to musical’s website is in the description below, so check em out after the video on there and on their social media @KingKongBWay, on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook! That being said, time to get bananas with our top 10 alternate versions of King Kong. In at number 10 is the RKO Comic Strips If RKO sounds like a familiar name to you, that’s because they were monumental in American film history. RKO Pictures was one of the big five studios of Hollywood’s golden age, and responsible for the 1933 King Kong film, along with The Son of Kong followup. They created comic strips in their press books, published by newspapers across the country as promotional material for both films, illustrated by Glenn Cravath, and were also published in Spain. Up next at number 9 is King Kong The Robot From 1964, a British comic company called IPC Media created a character called Mytek the Mighty. Who was essentially a giant robot ape, built by Professor Boyce. The comic was quite successful, continuing to be published throughout the 1970s, and eventually had it’s named changed to King Kong the Robot when it was published in comic strips in France. Eventually, the 32 issues it had under its belt were collected and published all together as Super King Kong. Getting a little cinematic at our number 8 spot with Peter Jackson’s King Kong While we’re all familiar with the original King Kong that appeared in the 1933 film, regardless of whether you’ve seen it in it’s entirety - it’s iconic. Well, Peter Jackson also brought Kong to life, in a retelling of that story, which was the director’s first major blockbuster after The Lord of the Rings. The 2005 film starred Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody, with Andy Serkis using motion capture to play Kong. Costing a then record breaking $207 million to make, it went on to win 3 Academy awards in sound editing, mixing and visual effects, and was chalk full of references to the original 1933 film. In our number 7 spot is The Gorilla Also known as the 1960s 1970s Mexican King Kong comics, this series was published by Editorial Orizaba, that featured full colour covers, but sepia and white panels for the actual comics inside. It ran for an impressive 185 issues. These would go on to inspire another King Kong comic from Latin America, called King Kong in the Microcosmos, released by Editorial America and published in 1979, and was all about aliens who recruit Kong to be their warrior and help them win the war waging on their home planet. Up next at number 6 is Gold Key Comics’ King Kong From 1968, this oversized comic was commissioned by Merian C Cooper, the director of the 1933 King Kong, and was based on the novelization of the film rather than the movie itself, with a cover painted by George Wilson and comic drawn by Alberto Giolitti of Star Trek comic fame. Despite not being a promotional tool for the film, considering when it was published, it would then be reprinted for the 1976 remake film, and translated into Dutch, Swedish, German and Norwegian Up next at the number 5 spot is The King Kong Show An animated American Japanese anime series, The King Kong Show ran on Abc in the US between September 1966 and August 1969. An animated adaptation of the original King Kong story, Kong befriends a family, the Bonds, who he goes on adventures with, saving the world from aliens, mad scientists, robots and other monsters. The show ran three seasons, with 25 episodes, and featured a Kong with a tiny head and massive torso. Up next at number 4 is Marvel’s King Kong Published in a one-shot by Marvel Comics in 1967, called America’s Best TV Comics, which was based off our previous number, The King Kong Show. He appeared in a mini story called Kong Joins the Circus, alongside other stories in the one shot featuring Casper the Ghost, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and other pop culture phenomenons. The King Kong Show also had another comic adaption in Japanese Shonen Magazine, where Kong fights a living version of the Statue of Liberty, summoned by Doctor Who. Up next at number 3 is King Kong on Broadway We had to include King Kong on Broadway here on our list, which is the latest adaptation of the big gorilla beast, based on the novel of the original 1933 screenplay. It’s a contemporary take on the classic tale of beauty and the beast, featuring a Kong that’s a massive, technologically enchased puppet, designed by Sonny Tilders, and, from the looks of it, will give audiences one unforgettable experience next autumn. Also worth noting, other impressive additions to their creative team include Jack Thorne of recent Cursed Child fame, among many other feats, director-choreographer Drew McOnie and songwriter Eddie Perfect. Up next at number 2 is Monster Comics Monster Comics were an imprint of Fantagraphics Books, which released a six issue black and white Kong series in 1991. This version wasn’t based on the 1933 film at all, but rather the 1932 novelization, and features many scenes the film doesn’t, including moments in a spider pit and more encounters with dinosaurs. This Kong is accompanied by dinosaurs when attacking the native village, and gets pretty handsy with Ann Darrow, with her really not feeling Kong’s advances. I mean, fair enough. And finally in our number 1 spot are the Dark Horse Comics In the 1990’s, Dark Horse had a habit of publishing comics based on popular cinematic monsters and creatures. This includes Predator, Alien, Godzilla, and they wanted to include our good friend Kong to that mix. But due to copyright issues, Dark Horse struggled for years to bring Kong to their panels, with their only success being a one page segment in the 1993 one shot Urban Legends concerning a myth about the King Kong vs Godzilla film. But in 2005, the publisher managed to strike a deal with Universal, licensing tie ins to Peter Jackson’s film, with direct adaptions. This eventually evolved into an authorized sequel of the 1933 film, called Kong: King of Skull Island, that becomes a prequel, revealing Kong’s early history, and how he was crowned king, ultimately leading to the human sacrifices he was famously offered.

Natchez Trace Parkway

During his time as a Mississippi congressman, Busby pitched the idea of the Natchez Trace Parkway. His motivation was to create jobs for locals who were suffering from poverty during the Great Depression until other work became available. He also believed that the project would be of interest to the people surrounding the Natchez Trace, and would impact multiple counties along the proposed 450 mile roadway. After its run through Congress and President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the project was given $50,000 to survey the Natchez Trace Trail and evaluate the possibility of Busby's Natchez Trace Parkway.[1]
