When we last saw Kamandi he had figured out how to drive a jeep like vehicle and was just beginning his journey of exploration.
Now, on the road, he sees something coming fast behind him. How does he see it, exactly?
Rear-view video! BAM!! Jack Kirby just saw the future!
After already seeing talking, bipedal wolves, he's not too surprised to see an army of man-like tigers dressed in Romanesque armor.
Kamandi seems to be adapting quickly to this strange new world.
He is then snatched up and onto the back of the tiger-man's horse.
He has just saved the life of the tiger's leader, Caesar, and is being carried straight into a war zone!
Notice the leopard-man in the foreground looking straight out of the panel as if the reader were looking through a window at the action. Classic Kirby.
This could make a neat goal for a quest or maybe just on a random loot table.
So far the tiger society seems pretty complex. Armies. Cities. Royalty. Access to ancient artifacts.
Definately needs to be written up in Gamma World or Mutant Future.
Captured and transported to the next scene.
Better that than dead.
