The Kamandi, The Last Boy on Earth wiki last edited by kfhrfdu_89_76k on 03/14/14 07:05AM View full history

This series focused on Kamandi's attempt to survive in a post apocalyptic world.

Comic book enthusiasts initially believed Jack Kirby's "Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth" was DC's way of capitalizing on the popularity of recent "Planet of the Apes" movies. However, Kirby had already introduced a similar concept and characters for "Alarming Tales"#1 (1957), where mankind had been made extinct in a future ruled by intelligent dogs, rats and tigers. Coupling the premise with his unpublished 1956 newspaper strip, "Kamandi of the Caves," Kirby's Last Boy on Earth roamed a world that had been ravaged by the "Great Disaster" and taken over by talking animals.

The series would be canceled as part of the so-called DC Implosion in 1978.
