After the chilling ending of the last issue, Keith Giffen and  Steve Rude transport us to a land where the Grecian sheep and the Wolf Garibaldeks are on the brink of war!

    There is one touch that feels odd, given the earlier issues, a page that visually recaps a number of adventures from the original comic. By and large, this series has presented a story completely independent of that one, right down to the way Renzi was used and introduced. The flashback page in this issue is difficult to reconcile with this, but I suppose such problems could be expected when a different creative team executes each chapter. Read Full Review

    Moving swiftly forward with its usual breakneck pace, but reaching new depths as the madness unfolds, this latest issue of Kamandi is another excellent installment to the madcap wasteland caper. Enjoy a sort of ancient Greek epic and witness the beginning of the end to Kamandi's sanity. Read Full Review

    A fairly disappointing contribution to the Kamandi Challenge, saved primarily by some spot-on artwork courtesy of Steve Rude. If you've followed the series to this, the last quarter, then I don't see why you'd bother stopping now. Here's a case where the next issue wiping away the prior is a good thing. Read Full Review

    Love cover A from Jim Lee, and overall a fun issue. The art is Kirby esque. 8 out of 10..

    This was by far the strangest issue of this series to date, though not particularly a bad one. Giffen did a very good job with using the legends from the classic literature, though the flashback pages were not particularly necessary. Also, I was rather disappointed by how he wrote the aftermath of last issue's cliffhanger. Rude's art suited a Kirby influenced story and was not something you see in modern superhero comic books that often anymore. Next month is Tom King's issue, which I have high hopes for.
