    KA-ZAR died.  Then he was resurrected by the Savage Land.  With the new lease on life, he is finding that he has a closer connection to the very land that he and his wife, Shanna, have sworn to protect.  While his resurrection has brought him closer to Shanna, it has not done anything to help his relationship with their son, Matthew.  Matthew is the typical teenager that every one of us was at one point.  He knows more than his parents.  And, if they would just listen, everything would work out.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Sep 9, 2021

    Ka-Zar: Lord Of The Savage Land #1 brings readers up to speed on the Plunder family post resurrection. The characters are well-written albeit hard to like, and the art captures the beauty of the Savage Land through the lens of a flowery garden. Throw in some techno-organic body horror for good measure, and we're off to a promising start. Read Full Review

    A strong start to what could end up being a subversive but fun book that questions its heroes and unpacks the history behind their rise. It's a superhero sociology class. Read Full Review

    It's a decent story with some great artwork that doesn't really leave a lasting impression once you set it down. Is that really such a bad thing? Read Full Review
