#784 Jack Kirby’s “Kamandi”: Wipeout

Kamandi 38

There’s a new sheriff in town in post-Great Disaster Earth: Gerry Conway took over as writer in Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth issue 38. Jack Kirby stayed on as artist for issues 38-40 before leaving D.C. So while the interior art looks the same as always (aside from covers by Joe Kubert), everything feels a little “off”. It doesn’t help that Kirby left Kamandi in a rather uncomfortable plotline (although Tim and Emmet disagree as to what level of “ick” is implied). Our look at Kirby’s Kamandi ends as Kamandi motorboats off to disappointing horizons.
