Key Comics Collection
Reviving Golden Age Timely character Ka-Zar, this issue of X-Men sees the mutants traveling to the Savage Land to ascertain if this Tarzan-styled hero is one of the their kind, and possibly enlist him into their team. An explosion of action ensues, battling the Swamp Men and a variety of dinosaurs, the X-Men fight their way out of of several sticky situations, with an assist from Ka-Zar and his saber-tooth tiger Zabu. After the mayhem dies down Ka-Zar decides to stay behind in his prehistoric homeland. The Kirby/Stone team created all of the fantastic art for this early X-Men fave.




This Twin Cities copy of X-Men #10 looks lovely in all its NM+ glory with popping hues and razor-sharp corners.



Overstreet Guide 2019 NM- (9.2) value = $1,250.




Artist Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.
