By the end I was really enjoying this. The writer had created a villain I really wanted to see taken down. 6/10

  I think it's so cute that Zabu gets his own listing under the appearances tab.

  "--Now you die!"

"You must kill me first, Pusher--"

Uh, yeah. That's what he said..

  Ka-Zar has extremely poor choice of words... I cringe every time he speaks in battle.

  I was not looking forward to reading this, but it was surprisingly okay. And Ka-Zar finally figured out that maybe he shouldn't bring his Tiger buddy loose on the streets with him.

  2 stars for the Pusher pushing back!!!

Cover Me - It's rough, but it is cool to see Ka-Zar & Zabu breaking out of the comic!!

Bird - What happened to Bobbi? She used to be strong, and now she's doing the whole love struck fool bit!!

Dojo - Pusher must be doing well for himself since he has two gyms!

'Nuff Said - "HOOO--YAA!"-Pusher, Master of Soul-Fu

  The follow-up to the previous issue was a little better, but it still read some like a blaxploitation story. Vinnie's redemption was a nice little twist though.

2 stars. I guess having Ka-Zar in New York helps shake up the story variety a bit, but I still prefer him in the Savage Land.

  She didn't immediately die on seeing her son, she must be going to make it! Because that's how medicine works!
