New Kirby – Kamandi 1-20 reprint

by

Out now from DC, KAMANDI, THE LAST BOY ON EARTH OMNIBUS v1, collecting the first 20 issues of the series.  These were all reprinted a few  years ago in another format, but hopefully this time we’ll see a reprint of the balance of Kirby’s 40 issue run on the series.  Some great stuff in this one, in particular #7, “The Monster Fetish”, is among my favourite Kirby stories ever, and “The Hospital” in #16, presenting as much as we get of an origin for “Earth A. D.”, is clever and touching.

    …not to mention that plaot elements of #16 were cribbed for the recent “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which just about makes it one lap around the inspiration track.
