Kamandi Challenge #10 is a quick moving, action-packed issue.

Our hero, Kamandi, (of Jack Kirby fame) is on a multi-issue adventure. Each issue is handled by a different creative team, who try their “Kirby Tribute” hands at this continuing saga.

This time around, it’s Greg Pak (writer) with Shane Davis (pencils), and Michelle Delecki (inks).

Kamandi, captured by robots, is questioned by the robots, then kept in confinement. However, he escapes, and with the aid of animals and marine beings, continues on his quest for answers. He’s kicking butt and not taking names or serial numbers. But what he discovers in this issue is a real shocker!

I found issue 10 ( this one) to be a VERY quick read, clocking in at under 10 minutes. Thanks to lots of big panels, splash pages, fights, and sparse dialogue, I was at the end of the issue before I expected to be.

Then, surprisingly, there was a text page from Tom King, referring to the previous issue’s behind-the-scenes with guest artist Kevin Eastman. It all seemed a bit disorganized to talk about last month’s issue in this month’s issue.

Oh well, these things happen in Kamandi Challenge. This issue: great artwork, lots of story twists, and we’re one step closer to the conclusion of the saga.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
