You can’t keep a good “Jungle” Man down, especially when he is the Lord of the Savage Land!
Marvel’s very own wild man returns in a brand-new, five issue limited series this September by writer Zac Thompson and artist German Garcia. The new series picks up directly after the tragic events of last summer’s crossover Empyre. Look for Lord Plunder to exhibit new powers and sensibilities, especially after the mystical merging between Ka-Zar and long-time partner, Shanna the She-Devil.
Thompson calls Ka-Zar: Lord of the Savage Land “…the book I’ve always wanted to write. It’s an absolute dream-come-true to take a character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and propel them into the modern Marvel universe with a whole host of horrifying new powers! It’s been years since Ka-Zar had his own series and we wanted to mark the occasion with an evolution that channels something like Immortal Hulk but with a distinct throwback to the old adventure pulps that inspired the character’s creation 65 years ago. I’m in awe of our team. Germán Garcia is delivering mind-blowing work that channels the best of Jack Kirby.”
Garcia is looking forward to exploring “…a classic Marvel character under a new light, and this is what we’re doing here. And it’s not just Ka-Zar, but the whole family, and as important as them, the Savage Land itself!”
Looking for this new version of Ka-Zar in stores on September 9.
