Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth – Kirby Artist’s Edition


Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth 
Like You’ve Never Seen Him!
The Jack Kirby Artist’s Edition Library Adds Essential Series

San Diego, CA (January 9, 2015) – Of all Jack Kirby’s celebrated DC Comics creations, perhaps none has struck such an enduring chord with readers as his post-apocalyptic adventure Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth. Now, to the delight of fans far and wide, this much-anticipated series joins the esteemed ranks of Jack “King” Kirby’s Artist’s Editions!

Long after the age of super heroes, Kamandi triumphed as humanity’s last beacon in a world ruled by beasts. Traveling the remnants of civilization after a great disaster, the Last Boy on Earth found both friends and foes among the irradiated animal kingdom that now inhabited the world. Written and drawn by Kirby, the series was unique to comics and completely unlike anything else readers had seen.

“To me personally, Jack Kirby is the greatest creator in the history of comic-book storytelling, period,” said Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman. “At the age of ten, Kamandi was my all-time favorite character, and now, at the age of fifty-two, he still is. This series was the reason I decided to dedicate my life to comics, hoping and dreaming if I worked hard, I could try to follow in Kirby’s giant footsteps.”

This enthralling Artist’s Edition features some of the most influential complete issues from the revered series, including issues 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 9, along with additional covers and other bonus material. At 160 pages and measuring 12” by 17,” this Artist’s Edition will amaze and delight fans this May!

Daredevil TV Show Launch Date – Australian Availability?

54ad66e9a53deHot on the heels of yesterday’s Ant-Man trailer launch, Marvel have now finalised the launch date for the Daredevil TV series.

That’s right Marvelites, Season 1 of “Marvel’s Daredevil” will premiere with 13 one-hour episodes on April 10, 2015 at 12:01 a.m. PT in all territories where Netflix is available.

Now this is interesting from an Australian viewpoint: Netflix launches here in March, so in theory we should have access to Daredevil from the time it launches, unless the rights had already been signed away to another company prior to that.

As for the show itself, I’m encouraged by the small snippets I’ve seen so far. DD is my favourite Marvel character (it’s the only Marvel title I attempt to be a completist on), so like a lot of people

I’m very keen to see the show work. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shows how a Marvel show can work well (albeit after some initial stumbles), so I remain hopeful for a great ride.

Personally I’m not a Netflix subscriber, but I will be if I get to see Daredevil.

What about you?
