When King Kong famously fell from his death perch on the summit of the Empire State Building early in 1933, the question on many moviegoers' minds was: Where the heck was Doc Savage?
For the tallest skyscraper in Manhattan was also the world headquarters of the famous superman -scientist known as the Man of Bronze.
Over succeeding generations, fans of both characters have speculated about a clash between these two titans of the Great Depression. Had Doc Savage been away at his Fortress of Solitude when Kong fell? Or had he been exploring some faraway corner of the world?
Eighty years after Doc Savage and King Kong first made their stunning debuts, these questions can now be definitively answered.
Will Murray's Skull Island is a landmark exploration of these two great legends. Opening in the immediate aftermath of King Kong's tragic demise, this monumental epic quickly moves from what to do with the titan ape's remains to Doc Savage himself recounting the hitherto-unrecorded tale behind the first and only encounter between the Man of Bronze and the Eighth Wonder of the World!
Set in the years following World War I, when both legends were young, Skull Island relates the astonishing tale of how Doc Savage and his explorer father sailed in search of their legendary ancestor, Stormalong Savage, only to find themselves among the first white men ever to set foot on the demonic dinosaur domain called...Skull Island!
Michael McConnohie returns to bring this shattering story to life - and knocks it out of the park!

I really enjoyed listening to my first Doc Savage book, Finally having these books on audible is fantastic - please have some more done.
This story by Will Murray was very much in the style of Lester Dent. Being able to see more into the younger years of Doc Savage was enjoyable and helped fill some of the gaps in the original storyline.
He was able to keep me interested and I thought he did a great job reading the book. I have bought a couple of other Doc Savage books he read and look forward to listening to them.
Overall excellent experience.
I am glad that Audile decided to sale DOC SAVAGE audiobooks! I have been reading these books since the 1960s and own about 130+ in paperback. If you are just getting introduced to Doc Savage and his crew you will enjoy his adventures. Each story is a stand-alone adventure. I have read many of the books over and over. If you like superheroes and action-adventure book these books are for you.
