Summary

Writer Jack Oleck and artist Alfredo Alcala focused on a primitive, powerful theme with which to depict the prehistoric warrior Kong in his debut issue: a growing sons bond with his mother. The bond gave Attu the strength to protect her newly born son from Trog the One-Eyed, who feared that the infant would someday rise to take his place as a tribal leader. The childs blond hair was unusual among the dark headed people, referencing a legend about a blond, unbeatable warrior called Kong, and Attu named him for this hero. Exiled from Trogs clan, Kong grew up fending for himself and his mother, until the evil Trog murdered Attu and ignited another primitive theme that would dominate the remainder of this 4 issue series (with later credits going to the likes of Bill Draut and Bernie Wrightson) : retribution.
