Part 3: Death in Devil's Chasm!
Kong shakes most of the sailors off the log bridge and into the chasm, where they are eaten by a swarm of giant spiders.
Kong's efforts to catch Driscoll are interrupted when Ann is attacked by a large meat-eating dinosaur, an Allosaurus. Kong fights and kills the dinosaur, then picks up Ann and moves on with Driscoll in pursuit. Denham, meanwhile, is sent back for reinforcements.
Trivia: Stout's cover shows Kong battling a Tyrannosaurus (when it is clearly an Allosaurus in the actual story).
Based on the 1932 novelization by Delos W. Lovelace and thus differs from the movie in numerous places. Notably, the ship is called the Vastator instead of the Venture and the characters of Charlie the Chinese cook and Second Mate Briggs are absent, replaced by a character from Lovelace's novel named Lumpy. The comic also contains several scenes not found in the film including the infamous "spider pit" scenes and extra encounters with dinosaurs by the search party. Other notable changes include the addition of a character totally original to this comic, Denham's assistant Wally, and an extended sequence of several dinosaurs joining Kong in attacking the native village.
