#1 is a by-the-numbers slugfest. Enlivened somewhat by the (brief) appearance of Shanna the She-Devil at the very end. 5/10

  They finally found what to do with Shanna. Leave Africa and put her in the Savage Land. That should bring some interesting stories.

  I liked the Shanna surprise, I had been wondering when she would make her way there. Other than that though, meh.

  Ka-Zar, happy to be back home, proceeds to kill one of every species or at least have flashbacks to previous genocides.

"A girl!" felt out of character, but at least Shanna has pep.

  Not even five minutes after he gets home, Ka-Zar gets into fights with an oversized snake and a shark. The guy's clearly happy to be back.

I don't think I'm real impressed with Malgato, but it was really fun to see Shanna in these pages. I was wondering how she'd first get to the Savage Land. And she seemed really feisty to Ka-Zar in spite of being tied up. She's going to be more interesting here than I thought.

3 stars. Nice beginning to a new era in Ka-Zar's narrative.

  I just hope Shanna gets to do stuff. There's too much chest beating that goes on in Ka-Zar.
