When this card set came out last year. We (the artist) were told that our references were coming from a recent novel - Here's some info about it : " GAW " is from the 2005 book "Kong: King of Skull Island" by Joe Devito, Brad Strickland & John Michlig. She is an abnormally large freak-of-nature raptor who basically commands an army size pack of regular sized normal raptors called Deathrunners and Slashers. The story reveals much of Kong's own backstory, from which as a child, his kind mother and mighty father, who was then King of Skull Island, were killed by Gaw and her army, from which young Kong goes into hiding amongst the human natives and Gaw becomes the new Queen of Kong Island. Gaw is a nasty wench and shares more in common to Willis O'brians unmade Kong enemies, like the giant amalgam of animal flesh Ginko (AKA Frankenstein) then the typical dinosaur opponents for the big gorilla.
