Leaving Tracking Site, Kamandi and his friends crash in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Florida. Kamandi gets picked up by a ship of leopards who go out and gather pre-Great Disaster goods and slaves for the Sacker Department Store. They’re sure a talking animal like Kamandi will fetch a good price in the market, as will another captive from the north, called “The Devil”.
After they get to shore Kamandi is able to escape again, and decides that freeing the Devil will give him the distraction he needs to get away. He finds out that the Devil is in fact a gigantic mutated insect.
Strong start to one of the best of the extended Kamandi stories. The Sacker ship shows a lot of Kirby’s talent for background business.
Mike Royer inks the cover and 20-page story.
