  2 stars for Kojak the Badguy Hunter! Who loves ya, baby?!!!

Location - It looks like this story takes place in Africa. If so, where did Balu the Tiger come from???

Pet Sounds - Speaking of Balu, he should be listed on the character appearances. Also, Simon draws him well.

Man In The Sky - I wonder if Bom the Lightning is the savages God??

  Again, the casual racism is startling to today's readers. Trojak has superior intelligence just because he's white?

  This is a fairly straight forward jungle adventure without anything really going for it. Trojak has been raised by natives and identifies more with them than with the white men he feels somewhat ashamed to be of the same race as, with the ending implying he feels he doesn't belong with them, but the comic touches so little on any of this it doesn't end up mattering much. It gets some bonus points for managing to make the reader feel some sympathy for the white men despite initially passing them off as rather nasty villains, though. But as a whole, it just lacks substance. It didn't even bother explaining what the whites were in the jungle for beyond a vague mention of gold.
