At last, DC presents the adventures of Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth, in the popular Jack Kirby Omnibus format! In these tales from Kamandi #1-20, Kamandi - one of the few survivors of a Great Disaster that has destroyed civilization - must search for a safe haven in a world populated by bizarre mutated animals and other strange wonders! Considered one of Jack Kirby's most creative works, Kamandi features a band of anthropomorphic supporting characters who accompany Kamandi as he searches for answers and adventure across the wastelands of Earth. In this final volume of the series, Kamandi faces danger from a giant, monstrous crab creature and an intelligent killer whale, and is hunted by the Sacker Company as a valuable intelligent human. In what is considered the series' greatest tale, Kamandi is forced to compete with the leader of a gorilla clan for the ultimate prize: Superman's costume!
Jack "King" Kirby's comics career began in 1937 and continued for nearly six decades. With partner Joe Simon, Kirby first made his mark in comics in the 1940s by drawing and/or creating numerous features for DC Comics including Captain America, the Young Allies, the Kid Commandos, Sandman, the Newsboy Legion and Manhunter. As the most valued team in comics, Simon and Kirby went on to create titles and concepts including Fighting American, Boys' Ranch and the creation of the romance comics genre. In 1961, the first issue of Marvel's Fantastic Four cemented Kirby's reputation as comics' preeminent creator, and a slew of famous titles followed that elevated him to legendary status, including Incredible Hulk, Avengers and X-Men. Kirby returned to DC in 1971 with his classic "Fourth World Trilogy," which was followed by The Demon, Omac and Kamandi. Kirby continued working and innovating in comics until his death in 1994.
