After the jaw-dropping cliffhanger of last issue, writer Steve Orlando and artist Philip Tan transport us to the frozen post-apocalyptic Russian tundra now controlled by the grizzly proletariat. Alongside his new friend, Renzi, Kamandi stumbles upon a "communi-bear" city on the brink of destruction! Can Kamandi help their ruler save the city? Or will everything come crashing down?

    Particularly towards the climax of the issue, when Mishkingrad rises, it just doesnt look very good to me. I was disappointed, much as I hate to admit that. And the cliffhanger to close out the issue didnt quite feel on par, either. A shame, because the start and middle of this issue were really fun. Read Full Review

    The Kamandi Challenge continues to delve into strange and wonderful situations fueled by the bizarre wasteland culture propagated by the animal-people who rule it. The book moves at the same breakneck speed as its previous issues, however that doesnt lend much to the deeper aspects of the interesting characters were introduced to each week. Read Full Review

    Orlando and Tan go a great job on both the first half and the second half where all the action and danger live. However they only have one page to introduce us to Renzi who is the mcguffin at the heart of the second half. The quick change of all the cast around Kamandi leave both him and the readers with abandonment issues. Read Full Review

    Some high-minded ideas and sharp art can't fix the clunky plotting and slow pace. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 28, 2017

    Theissue begins with a convoluted solution to the previous issue's cliffhanger andends with a bloated tale of dubious politics. A lot of the issue looks rushedor redrawn, and none of it screams classic Jack Kirby to me. This is definitelythe worst issue in the Kamandi Challenge series so far. Read Full Review

    This was by far the worst issue so far. The story was messy and sometimes quite difficult to follow, and the art, while being quite good, did not help it at all.
