Jack Kirby’s Kamandi – The Last Boy On Earth

I am a big fan of Jack ‘King’ Kirby, but moreso for his comic book writing than his art. As you will see in these scans, there is just something with his faces that I find a bit weird and off-putting. Then again you can always tell a Kirby drawing just by looking at the faces.

Kamandi is obviously based on the Planet of the Apes movies and shouldn’t really work, but it does. Having criticised Kirby’s art I must admit I do like his animal drawings a lot. (Much more than his human drawings!)
