The Thing and Kamandi



I have always felt that Kamandi is a DC property that is ripe for the animated series treatment. The last boy on Earth trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic future populated by talking animals hits all the right notes. His appearance on Batman: The Brave and the Bold only solidifies my opinion on this. I was a huge fan of the Kamandi serial in DC's large format Wednesday Comics project last year, I think that Ryan Sook's art in that was spectacular, and it made a lot of people take notice of the property for the first time. Hopefully we will see more of Kamandi in the future, it's too unique a concept to be staying in limbo for years at a time.

Sook's art on Wednesday Comics was absolutely amazing and probably my favorite of the run. Gorgeous epic stuff.

A Kamandi animated series... never thought about it before, but yeah, that could be cool. -Mea

One of my favorite Kirby creations...out of all time. This would have made a good team up. KAMANDI appeared in BATMAN the BRAVE AND THE BOLD animated series...it was a fun action filled episode. He'd make a prime subject for his own series indeed.

Here's another vote for Kamandi animated. But if they go that way here's hoping they go away from the Bruce Timm look for something just a little grown up. It would suit the ruins etc. better.

Well, it's not quite a Kamandi cartoon, but don't forget Thundarr the Barbarian from Mr. Kirby.

In the back of my head, I have some memory that there was interest in a Kamandi animated series and that was why the title ran as long as it did.
