Kamandi #2 - Jack Kirby art & cover, non-attributed Bernie Wrighston ad
Kamandi v1 #2, 1972 - Befriending a team of nuclear mutants, the last boy on Earth escapes New York City and its syndicate of rats. Jack Kirby's excellent drawings depict a city devastated by the Great Disaster, including landmarks such as the George Washington Bridge on the opening two-page spread. The artist's verve and enthusiasm is evident throughout the story. This issue also includes an ad promoting the upcoming Shadow series. Stunningly drawn by Bernie Wrightson, it rarely appears in other DC comics from the same era. This is number 2 of 40 Kamandi issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
