Issue Review

Setting - It was a dark and stormy night. No, really, it was. And it really adds mood and atmosphere.
Fight - Ka-Zar and his buddy get into a fight soon after the trouble starts. Why? Hard to say. Ka-Zar's motivations for stopping his friend aren't made clear. So, it's just a random fight.
Villain - The backstory is elaborate, but the villain himself is bland.
Art -Terrible. Frequently couldn't make out what was happening, even after close scrutiny.
4/10

  The first appearance of Bobbi Morse! Yet, I wonder how she will factor into this strange story.

  2 stars for Ka-Zar playing Noah as Damon has a temper tantrum!!!

Saddle Up - I do like Damon's flying golden horse with tentacle mane and tail.

Gone Native - I do like Tongah's little sister Tatia! ME-OW!!!

'Nuff Said - "And I know that unless I speak with him--Lord Kevin will die!"-Bobbi Morse, Mocker of Fate

  Good thing they only have legends about one god with a flying horse. Imagine if someone had told the Savage Land about the Greek and Roman gods.

  It was a little hard for me to follow the Ka-Zar story here. A mad god isn't anything new, although it wasn't executed bad here at all. But I wasn't a fan of Bill Everett's inks here; Barry Smith still works well in this series as well as Conan, but all the swirls Everett added were counter-intuitive and distracting from Smith's well-known "primitive Earth" feel.

3 stars. Lord Kevin Plunder will die, sayeth the Bird that Mocks.

  I really liked the art in this issue. It seems more ragged, somehow and that makes it more appropriate.

The plot is pretty standard, but the issue wasn't too bad.
