Kamandi Challenge #7 Review

Marguerite Bennett and Dan Jurgens pick up the story in Kamandi Challenge 7. It’s a fun issue, though not perhaps one of the best of the run so far.

Kamandi and Renzi escape from the Russian Bears, and quickly wind up in the hands of a Bulldog Britanneks, aboard the Damnable Dirigible Doghouse. That’s the kind of name Kirby would have used, and there are more than a few very nice touches like that in this outing. I mean, how can one not enjoy a story in which a bunch of dogs sit around a table playing poker?


The dogs are not the problem in this issue. Rather, Kamandi and friends have to cope with some really creepy parasitic bugs and an Ice Wizard in the far north.
Jurgens’ art is perfect throughout this tale. His rendering of the dogs could not possibly be better. Their faces are unmistakably canine, and yet Jurgens provides a lot of human personality and emotion in them. It helps make the quasi-bestiality stuff, with a dog who has a crush on Kamandi, quite charming.

There is a solid cliffhanger to close out the issue. Indeed, there is really nothing I can find to criticize in this story. But sadly, there is also nothing that really kicks it above what has come before. I guess that’s a bit of a problem when there have been so many excellent issues in this Challenge already.

Rating: 8 /10
