“The Coming of Ka-Zar!”
Written by Stan Lee, Drawn by Jack Kirby, Inked by Chic Stone, Lettered by S. Rosen.

There Are No New Ka-Zars Under The Sun…

In Which We Learn That Color TV Or Not One Must Always Knock Before Entering Warren’s Room, That Tyrannosaurs And Pyramids Are An Unpleasant Mix At Best, And Hospitality Thy Name Is Not Ape Man.

And I Still Don’t Care What The Paleontological Consensus Is: They Are Friggin’ Brontosaurs And That Is That!

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Are you all right, Jean?
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.
Uh, Hank, get the Professor. Now.
I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will…

Jack Kirby always knew his 6th grade “Prehistoric Wonders” diorama would come in handy one day.

Zabu, Ka-Zar will take One-eye and Giant-foot to Fortress of Swamp Men. While me gone, you crush up Ice Man into Ka-Zar’s afternoon Mojito. This time, Zabu, no bruise mint! No. Bruise. Mint. Eeeaaahhh!!!

Needless to say, Ka-Zar was never invited back to the Elephant Bar happy hour.

Grunthar the Swamp Man can not decide which is worse: Having to explain how he lost his entire army because it was rolled up in a giant snow ball or that Ruklar the Swamp Man took this opportunity to touch Grunthar in taboo places. When hands are free of grip of ice, Ruklar, there will be much clubbing!
