Kamandi #4 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Kamandi v1 #4, 1973 - Captured by gorilla soldiers, Kamandi finds an unlikely ally in Prince Tuftan, a fellow prisoner from the army of tigers. Aside from his usually splendid two-page spread, Jack Kirby shows his humorous side as the title character reads a withering copy of Demon #1 in the first scene. As seen on the splash above, the action is constant and intense throughout most of the book. Note how much more dynamic Kirby's page& is compared to the same scene on the cover. This is number 4 of 40 Kamandi issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Kamandi issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
