"I was introduced to Kamandi with the post-Kirby stuff, so I was already sold; the first image of him I ever saw was probably drawn by Dick Ayers and inked by Alfredo Alcala -- worlds away from Kirby. Kirby's own Kamandi was a little jarring to…"
"And here I paid full price (minus 20 percent) at Amazon, and really didn't like it.*smacks head*
I wasn't a big fan of Kamandi in general, but it must be said that the Kirby work was head and shoulders above anything that came after. For…"
"...I have to re- heck the details, but Toomorrows is putting out a book of lesser-known DC Kirby - the THE DINGBATS OF DANGER STREET issue of FIRST ISSUE SPECIAL and the complete what-exists?? of these two never-published attempts to review e the…"
"Yep, the Omnibus is issues 1 through 40, which I think is all of the Kirby stuff. I'd love a collection of the later stuff too, as tgattt how I was introduced to Kamandi, but I've picked up most of those back issesi, regardless. (Most of…"
"The post-Kirby Kamandi was a poor substitute. Kirby made me believe every civilization we saw had existed before Kamandi encountered it and went on after he departed. The later writers reduced everything to monster of the week level.
"Good choice! Is it all in one volume? I have it in a two-volume edition. This is one of those series where Jack Kirby just got to throw pure imagination out there, and it really paid off.
Now, having the complete Jack Kirby Kamandi in my hands,…"
"Just used a birthday gift card from my mom to order the Jack Kirby's Kamandi Omnibus! I sat on this card for a couple months, but finally came to terms with the fact that, yeah, there's pretty much no time that I won't want this book."
"My Sgt. Fury collection is complete except for issues #1-4, so having the first Masterworks pretty much finished me off on that score. But I'd like to get the whole series in hardback -- as I would all Silver Age series, since that's a…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
