Issue Review
   March 14, 2017

Straightforward adventure. Ka-Zar impresses.
Two men seek Ka-Zar's help at the start of this story. The middle of the comic follows their trek back to the hidden village of the men. There are people to rescue and a villain to defeat. They are attacked. Ka-Zar is fierce, a warrior. His apparent invincibility here removes some of the tension/drama.
At the end, in final battle, the villain unveils a supernatural army.

  -I enjoyed Heath's pencils--nice!
-The zebra tribe reminded me of an episode of Star Trek TOS...
-That Sheesa can come over to my tribe...ANYTIME! Bring the zombies or whatever, just stay in that bikini.
-Ka-Zar= Conan. Conan= Ka-Zar. Good stuff.

  The beginning was a bit wordy, but zombies!

  Better art and story than the last few issues.

  This was an excellent story. Hopefully the conclusion builds upon this and finishes.

  Oh my stars and garters! An actually decent Ka-Zar story! I think I had lost all hope of the possibility.
Once again though, yet another civilization that the "lord" of the land had no idea even existed. How many freaking civilizations are there in the Savage Lands anyways? This is getting a bit ridiculous.
Appreciated the racial tolerance message in this one, especially after the pretty blatant racism of the last couple of issues. And hey, they answered the old question about zebras being white with black stripes or black with white stripes. Both, apparently.

  "Wizard of Forgotten Flesh". That title could have been used for a sleazy porn movie. What a waste!

  Not much difference here over the past few issues, but I did get a little bit of amusement from the tenuous relationship between Zaurai and Sheesa. I think she's got you whipped there, dude; wouldn't surprise me one bit if she decided she wanted all the spoils to herself!

3 stars, and hopefully no more of that wet kitty smell from Zabu. We all know he hates baths!
