Gold Key's adaptation of King Kong was released in 1968, but in 1979 I was on holiday at a caravan park somewhere, and inbetween the inevitable issues of True Crime and Titbits, came across a large format reprint with no mention of any publisher anywhere on it. Caravan parks in the '70's were always great for unexpected comics you'd never heard of.
Anyway, this is arcetypal Gold Key, even if you hadn't spotted a typically beautiful painted cover from George Wilson, and interior art from Alberto Giolitti, as it came complete with those unlined panel borders that always told you it was Gold Key you were reading.
Wilson was the company's premier cover artist ( look up The Phantom #8 on the GCBD to see him playing the bad guy about to slug The Ghost Who Walks from behind ), while Giolitti was, of course, the artist behind Star Trek ( even though he never apparently saw the show until years after doing still the best version in comics ). So you know this is gonna be good.
