"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…"

"Okay, now I want to read it! I did have a couple issues, but I'd like to see it collected. I know it has some sweet Joe Kubert covers, at the very least."

"Call me crazy but I liked the Post-Kirby "Kamandi". True it had its wacky moments but it took the series in a more mature direction with loads of new characters."

"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…"

"For anyone partial to the Silver Age Suicide Squad, DC is apparently liquidating overstock of the 2016 Omnibus. I picked up a copy at an Ollie's today for $10."

"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…"

"Oh, I'm sure they weren't Kirby-level. I'm just thinking they are probably kind of fun in a historical kind of way."

Fraser Sherman replied to John Dunbar's discussion DC's Omnibus line - Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collections
"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. Fraser"

Hey John. How've you been?
At 10:14am on August 18, 2013, Philip Portelli said…

Hello John,

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.

With all respect and best wishes,

Philip
